Education Committee – School Funding Crisis

In the Education Committee session with the Secretary of State Damian Hinds MP, I raised the concerns of head teachers in our local area about budget pressures.

A report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies revealed that by 2019 education funding will have fallen by 4.6%.

I pushed the Secretary of State to make a commitment to fight for more money for education in the next spnding review, and to close the funding gap in our schools.
