PUPILS from a Doncaster school have quizzed Labour leader Ed Miliband about the plight of 67 million children worldwide who miss out on education.

Doncaster North MP Mr Miliband visited Scawsby’s Stone Hill School, which caters for pupils with autism, to discuss the issue.

The children have been taking part in The Send My Friend to School campaign for the last three years.

It aims to remind world leaders of a promise made in 2000 that every child worldwide would get a primary education by 2015.

Stone Hill kids wrote to Mr Miliband and sent him messages particularly about the number of girls in the developing world who are missing out on schooling.

Sue Endicott, Key Stage 2 leader at the school said: ”I understand Mr Miliband was very touched by the letters the children sent.

“It’s heartening he has come to hear our concerns.”
