This announcement will do nothing to address the funding crisis facing schools across the country – Angela Rayner

Angela
Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary,
commenting on the Government’s
funding announcement for schools in England, said:

“None of today’s announcement is new money. Seven years
of Tory neglect has left our children in crumbling and overcrowded schools.

“The National Audit Office have
already told us that existing school buildings across the country are
inadequate, while money has been ploughed into inefficient free schools and the
Prime Minister’s grammar schools vanity project.

“This announcement will do nothing to address the funding crisis facing
schools across the country.”
