Dates of existence
The SEA has a long and proud history. It goes back to the formation of the National Association of Labour Teachers in the 1920s and was widened out and renamed the “Socialist Educational Association” in 1959. There membership has included teachers, lecturers and academic researchers, school support staff and administrators, students, Councillors, Governors, parents and others with a general interest in education. They have a fund of expertise and experience on all aspects of education. This has enabled them to participate in national and local discussions about education at all levels and in all forums. They seek to inform and influence the development of education policies by the Labour Party, to which we are affiliated.
