Conservatives won’t even reverse their school cuts since 2010 – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, responding to the government’s announcement on school funding, said:

“For years Tories like Boris Johnson sat around the Cabinet table cutting funding from our schools while handing out billions in tax giveaways to the richest and big business.

“Despite the rhetoric from government, this will not even reverse the cuts that schools have faced since 2010, let alone give them the investment they need for every child to get a world class education.

“Only a Labour government will fully reverse these Tory cuts, and give our schools the funding they need.”
