Nick Seaton

It is with very great sadness that we announce the death of Nick Seaton on Thursday 29th November 2012. Nick Seaton

Nick founded the CRE twenty-five years ago and served as chairman for most of that time. Over the past couple of years he continued to work tirelessly in his role as CRE secretary. As the CRE’s central figure, he did more for education in this country than anyone. He kept a flag of resistance flying in the face of educational fashions that have gone on to fail a generation of youngsters. He provided an honest voice for that silent majority of parents, teachers and pupils who were afraid to speak out against the educational establishment. To the end he remained an unsung hero. Without Nick we would never have had a great debate about education because there would not have been a voice of dissent. He was the best of men and he will be greatly missed. The CRE will continue to hold the flag he raised.

It was Nick’s final wish, in writing, that his funeral be a private family event. He asked that any donations be sent to the CRE or to the Macmillan Nurses (www.macmillan.org.uk)
