On Friday 29th June, Margot James MP met with a group of special needs students at Glasshouse College before answering questions and touring some of the College facilities and workshops.
The students raised a range of issues including the abolishment of Educational Maintenance Allowance, funding options for special needs colleges, the decision to build the High Speed 2 rail network, and entry criteria to special needs colleges.
The meeting also included Ian Austin MP, and was chaired by John Yeates, who is the upcoming chairman of Stourbridge Rotary Club.
Margot said: “Glasshouse College really is a fantastic facility and I was very impressed by the high quality of the work the students produce, in particular the beautifully designed and colourful Olympic Torch. It was very interesting to hear the well thought through questions, which covered an extremely wide range of topics, from the group of students who attended.”
