It is deeply depressing that the Tories have chosen to take money away from schools like this – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on
reports that the Treasury has taken back £384 million originally promised for
schools in England, said:

“It is astonishing that the Treasury is now clawing money
back from the Education budget at the same time as schools spending is being
drastically cut.

“There is no better investment a government can make than
in education and it is deeply depressing that the Tories have chosen to
take money away from schools like this.

“Theresa May needs to answer some serious questions on what this
money is now going to be used for if not to help ease the pressure on
struggling schools.”
