A Meeting with Laura Pidcock MP

May 21, 2019



An extract from Laura Pidcock's twitter account @LauraPidcockMP


"What an uplifting way to be welcomed back to North West Durham after a week in Westminster. I had the privilege to meet with the team and some incredible students yesterday at St Bede's School in Lanchester.


It was really interesting to hear the student's comparisons of the British education system versus the Finnish education system; the unneccessary pressures that constant exams and homework can cause for students, as well as the increasing strain this has on the mental health of young people.


We had a lively debate about politics and I was blown away by their knowledge and assessment of the current political climate.


I left feeling so positive that there are such enthusiastic young people in my constituency, who I am sure have very promising futures ahead of them."
