Maroof Raouf - Policy Officer

Maroof

Maroof Raouf is currently campaigning in Sheffield and will be standing as a local candidate in the May 2021 elections.

I have supported the Green Party for many, many years and officially decided to join in 2019. I have recently been involved in getting the Islamophobia Defined Motion to Conference and I am a big supporter of making sure people in power are held to account. I feel the Green Party stands for true justice and has an educational policy that represents the desires of the UK public. Education should not be an assembly driven provision as it stifles creativity and the huge potential children have. School league tables need to be scrapped as they give an over-inflated impression of schools that have a higher ability intake. Children's achievements should be celebrated without turning it into a game between schools.

A proud immigrant who can speak multiple languages, Maroof has worked across a number of different countries and has a wide range of experiences with many different cultures and people around the world. He currently works as a teacher.
