Kate Green – 2020 Comments on Education in January 2021

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Secretary of State for Education, on 22 December 2020.

Once again when schools, pupils and parents need certainty the Government has created chaos. The Government has lost control of the virus and children’s education is suffering as a result.

Gavin Williamson’s late announcement on testing has created huge stress and confusion, and now the Prime Minister has said these plans published just five days ago may not happen.

The Government must provide pupils, parents, and schools with clear information about what will happen in January and what support they will receive.
