A delegation from Sinn Fein has handed a petition in at 10 Downing Street in protest at cuts to education services in Northern Ireland.
SF has collected 12,000 signatures against education cutbacks
The party has said the cuts range from a reduction in teachers and classroom assistants to a lack of school buses.
Sinn Fein education spokesman Michael Ferguson said the cuts are having a severe impact on children.
"We have 12,000 signatures which is a token of the frustration and anger felt right across our society," he said.
"In the last two years, we have lost over 500 school staff.
"In the SEELB area alone, we have lost over 78 school crossings and school transport in other rural areas, where it is most needed, has been eroded."
