The Government’s handling of the schools budget is nothing short of a scandal – Angela Rayner

Angela
Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary
, commenting on
the Public Accounts Committee’s report on the Financial Sustainability of
Schools, said:

“The
Government’s handling of the schools budget is nothing short of a scandal.

“Ministers
clearly don’t have a clue what is going on in our schools, and apparently they
haven’t even asked. And while they continue to bury their heads in the sand,
our children’s futures are being put at risk.

“The
Tories made a clear promise at the election: to protect the money following
every child throughout school. They must urgently act on the Committee’s
recommendations, and keep this promise.”
