Report on Johnson’s plans for school funding – Rayner responds

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to a report on Boris Johnson’s plans for school funding, said:

“Schools across England have been hit by years of Tory cuts and need investment to give every child the best possible start in life, not just a lucky few. The last Prime Minister failed to end austerity and it’s clear the new one won’t do any better.

“The next Labour government will invest in every school, with a genuinely fair funding formula that allows every child to flourish in education.”
