The Government needs to concentrate on increasing capacity and improving schools in the areas that need it the most – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, commenting on an NAO
report on capital funding for schools, said:

“Hundreds of secondary schools in England are already full to
capacity, while thousands more are crumbling and in desperate need of repair.
Yet the Tories continue to waste millions opening free schools in areas that do
not need them.

“The Government needs to concentrate on increasing capacity and
improving schools in the areas that need it the most.”
