A generation of children will pay the price for Tory austerity – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the Times report on parents paying for school repairs, said:

“This government should hang its head in shame. A whole generation of young people are being failed because of cuts that have slashed education funding.

“It is a national disgrace that our schools are begging parents to help them cover basic supplies in the one of the wealthiest countries in the world.

“It will be a generation of children who will pay the price for Tory austerity

“The next Labour government will end Tory cuts to our schools and increase education spending as part of a National Education Service that works for the many, not the few.”
