Angela Rayner responds to Teach First research on the GCSE results of disadvantaged students

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to Teach First research on the GCSE results of disadvantaged students, said: 

“The Tories have embedded inequality in our schools, with the most disadvantaged students losing out.

“The Conservatives have slashed funding for schools and created a crisis in teacher recruitment and retention, and a generation of children are paying the price for this government’s failure.

“Labour will end Tory cuts to our schools, giving them the resources they need to help every child to succeed, whatever their background.”
