Representatives from a teaching union will be holding a meeting tomorrow to discuss plans by two primary schools in Brent to become academies.
Hank Roberts, Brent branch secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), and his wife Jean are organising the debate following the proposal by Oakington Manor in Wembley and Furness in Harlesden.
Everyone is invited to take part in the forum where those for and against the plans can speak publicly.
There will also be a secret ballot.
Members of the ATL have previously led a number of campaigns against academy conversions for several schools in the borough including St Andrew and St Francis CE Primary School in Belton Road, Willesden.
