Kate Green – 2021 Comments on Resignation of Kevan Collins

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Education Secretary, on 2 June 2021.

Kevan Collins’ resignation is a damning indictment of the Conservatives’ education catch-up plan.

He was brought in by Boris Johnson because of his experience and expertise in education, but the Government have thrown out his ideas as soon as it came to stumping up the money needed to deliver them.

Labour has set out a plan to deliver the bold policies that will boost children’s recovery from the pandemic recognising that learning and wellbeing go hand-in-hand together.

Our children and their future ambitions and life chances depend on us getting this right. The Conservatives’ failure to deliver for children now could cost our country dearly long-term.
