It is clear that Johnson has failed to keep his pledge to reverse the Tories’ education cuts

Angela Rayner, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to National Education Union analysis on school funding, said:

“Teachers and parents cannot trust Boris Johnson and his rapidly unravelling empty promises. It is now clear that Johnson has failed to keep his pledge to reverse the Tories’ education cuts, let alone match Labour’s plans to invest in a National Education Service.

“Boris Johnson’s Conservatives will only ever look after the privileged few – that is why pupils and schools in disadvantaged areas have quite deliberately been denied the extra funding they need, entrenching not tackling inequality.

“A Labour government will fully reverse Tory cuts and give our schools the funding they need to ensure every child gets a good education.”
