Yesterday I had the chance to meet with teachers and students at Totton College. I talked to second year General Studies students and answered their questions on a range of subjects, such as the environment and the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit, public transport and freedom of speech.
Totton College is one of many colleges in Hampshire which has been badly let down by the government. Like Southampton colleges it was promised a multi million pound rebuild and then had the plug pulled on the funds. Although not in the Southampton Test constituency Totton College attracts a considerable number of students from the city.
