MPs are going back to the classroom tomorrow.

Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman and Colne Valley MP Kali Mountford will be quizzed by students about why 100m children worldwide go to school.

They will be among 450 MPs returning to more than 1,500 classrooms this week as part of the Global Campaign for Education's Week of Action.

Mr Sheerman will be visiting Moldgreen Community School and Ms Mountford will be at Marsden Junior School.

They will take part in debates and question and answer sessions about why every child in the world should be ensured a good-quality basic education.

The Week of Action takes place four years after 182 governments signed the Education for All commitments in Dakar, Senegal, promising primary education for all by 2015.

Kim Tan, of Oxfam, said: "For people in the developing world, an education is a ticket to a new life and a chance to break the cycle of poverty.

"The overwhelming numbers of UK MPs going back to school sends out a clear message - education for all should be an international priority."
