Speaking ahead of today’s [28/09/2018] march on Westminster by up to a thousand headteachers protesting at cuts to school budgets, Liberal Democrat Education Spokesperson Layla Moran said:
“Head teachers are on the front line, trying to manage funding cuts and swelling class sizes every day. They have every right to speak out about the devastating toll this is taking on the quality of education in their schools.
“The Tory Government have ignored countless warnings that schools are cutting staff numbers, dropping subjects from the curriculum and even asking parents to chip in with donations to make ends meet. It has to stop.
“The Liberal Democrats demand better. We wholeheartedly support the headteachers in their protest. It is vital that this time the Government finally listens to them and puts an end to these crippling cuts.”
