For several years the UK government has embarked on a slow process of privatisation of UK state education, known as the Academy system.
Using UK taxpayer's money, private corporations and investors invest into individual schools, making a profit from taxpayers money in the process.
If that is not enough, the investors of Academy's then get a say in what our children will learn.
Such examples of this are evolution and Darwin's theories being eradicated from certain schools, teaching only creationism. Another example is one investor setting up after-school activities for it's students - a telesales call centre, teaching kids the joys of telephone sales.
For two years the teachers of Wembley in London have protested and opposed the construction of an Academy school in Brent on the only free sports field in the area.
This video, pt1, documents the Brent Tent City Campaign.
