Kate Green – 2021 Comments on School Funding

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Secretary of State for Education, on 2 April 2021.

The Conservatives’ stealth cut to school budgets shows disregard for children’s futures as we recover from this pandemic.

The Government’s mishandling of the Covid crisis has kept children out of school, missing out on learning and time with friends, and now they are cutting support that would help children most likely to have struggled with learning over the last year.

The Conservatives have neglected children through this pandemic and now risk leaving them behind in our recovery.
