Children deserve more from this Tory Government – Rayner

Angela
Rayner, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary
, commenting on the letter from Core Cities UK to the
Education Secretary, said:

“Schools
are facing unprecedented cuts to their budgets and all the Tories have to offer
are warms words about how they will help them make the savings.

“When
headteachers are faced with the choice of keeping the lights on or letting go
of teachers, this is galling to say the very least.

“Children
deserve more from this Tory government who have created a school funding
crisis, chronic teacher shortages and super-sized classes.”
