London, UK. 5 July, 2019. Jess Phillips, Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley, and her 10-year-old son Danny join hundreds of parents and children on a demonstration organised by the Save Our Schools campaign group in protest against schools being forced to close early on Fridays due to funding cuts and to highlight the government's responsibility to care for and educate the nation's children on Friday afternoons. Following a rally in Parliament Square, the parents and children marched to Downing Street, where a letter was later presented. The school attended by Jess Phillip's son Danny is among those which will close on Friday afternoons with effect from September.
