Tories attempting to avoid addressing their own record on education

Responding to a Conservative education announcement, Angela Rayner, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, said:

“This document is a combination of outright lies, irresponsible scaremongering, and misleading figures. This is a transparent attempt from the Conservatives to avoid addressing their own record on education.

“The Tories suggesting that children will lose opportunities will be a bitter irony to a generation of parents who have seen their children go through schools as budgets have been slashed, the curriculum has been narrowed, and the life chances of their children have been directly harmed by a senseless programme of austerity.

“Labour will give our schools the investment and support they need to make an excellent education the right of every child.”
