UKIP Student Leads Campaign to Save Vision Studio School
Studio Vision School in Mansfield recently announced that it was to close after an anti-UKIP agenda was revealed and a dreadful Ofsted report was published, as Kipper Central reported. However, despite all the bad news and desolate circumstances facing the school, one student was determined to do all he could to save the school where he’d learned so much and made so many friends. That student was UKIP activist Michael Higginson and he led what became a huge campaign to save the school.
Michael’s campaign attracted support from hundreds of local residents on social media, several local councillors, and even the mayor and the Mansfield MP (and of course the local UKIP branch).
Speaking to Kipper Central, Michael said “I think it’s appalling that the regional education commissioner wants to shut the school down with such short notice. Even though they received a bad Ofsted report, it should be their duty to keep it open for one more year.”
While Michael has attracted a lot of attention with his efforts, many other UKIP branches and members are doing great things all across the nation but the media are simply not reporting on them. That’s why we launched Kipper Central Grassroots, to report the good news about UKIP you won’t hear in the mainstream media.
Also speaking to Kipper Central, Ella, a student at Vision School, said “Michael has brought us all closer, bringing councillors in to attempt to save our school. All of us are very grateful to have Michael, we wouldn’t have come this far without him!”
Daniel, another student at the school, also spoke to Kipper Central and said (of Michael) “He’s helped introduce anybody who’s interested into politics, whether they support ukip or any other party. He’s always there to offer advice when it comes to law politics etc, but most of all he’s just a good friend”
