A small cabal of far-Left teachers is orchestrating a series of strikes and aggressive campaigns against free schools and academies.
The militant activists are using the campaign group the Anti Academies Alliance (AAA) to orchestrate local opposition to the new schools, championed by Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, as a key plank of his education reforms.
The groups three founding members are trained teachers and members of the Socialist Workers Party, a far-Left group whose goal is the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism.
A Sunday Telegraph investigation shows that the alliance is a far cry from the grass-roots movement that it appears to be from its website.
One of the leaders Nick Grant, a teacher in Ealing in west London is paid by his local Labour-controlled authority to carry out duties full-time as an official with the National Union of Teachers.
Its other founders are Alasdair Smith, a history supply teacher and president of the Islington branch of the NUT in north London, and Ken Muller, a sixth-form college teacher and assistant secretary of the NUTs Islington branch. Mr Muller also stood as a candidate for Respect, George Galloways socialist party.

We need another Conservative uprising in elected offices, otherwise we may have a full blown
generation of people who's only thinking is communistic in general and they'll believe it's the only way.
“far-Left teachers” We should stop referring to these people as “Far Left” and start calling them what they are, Marxists.
Funny this comes up now. A few months ago someone asked me to take a look at a far leftist that was making a lot of waves in the media and it turned out he was a former schoolteacher that taught elementary grade school that had been trained by the SWP for many years. Turns out he was also a former union leader! What a coincidence. Folks our schools have been infiltrated by enemies that wish to overtake us and do us harm and they figured out how to do it without firing a single shot; by indoctrinating your kids with PC and turning them against you. This is no coincidence. It’s for real.
How dare you want to teach your own children, who will we indoctrinate now?
