Schools are run like businesses and pupils are unhappy, according to the Greens

    The Greens believe that the education system treats children like ‘battery hens’, and running schools like businesses has a human cost - the poor mental health of pupils and teachers because of stress:

    ‘Pupils in our schools are treated like “battery hens” and are among the unhappiest children in the world.

    That’s the view of The Green Party, which says the culture in which “schools are run as businesses” is driving teachers out of the profession.

    ….Speaking on an "election special" panel at the Schools and Academies Show in Birmingham, the Greens' education spokesperson, Vix Lowthion, outlined the party's plans for education.’
