The proposed funding cuts fall the deepest in Cheshire East. Our schools will become the most poorly funded schools in the country at just £4,122 per pupil. By 2019 Cheshire East’s schools will have lost nearly £25 Million of funding - the equivalent of 670 teachers’ salaries.
Liberal Democrats would protect school funding, from the early years through to college. We believe that education is the key to opportunity and fairness: the opportunity for people to achieve whatever they want to be; the fairness that comes from everyone having a decent start in life. There is nothing fair about these cuts.
With Liberal Democrats in government we delivered the pupil premium, extra help for those most in need in the years when it can do most good. And we brought in free school meals for the early years, because the evidence said kids who have a decent meal learn better in the afternoon.
Without Lib Dems to hold them to account the Tories have U-Turned on those promises, and abandoned our kids. How can the local Tory MPs say they are fighting this when they never rebel in parliament, never hold the government to account? It is clearly only the threat to these backbenchers in the election that has brought even the hint of a rethink.
In particular, David Rutley (Macclesfield) may have presented a petition from constituents to Parliament but on 25 January this year he voted in support of the school funding cuts, against a motion calling on the Government to ensure that all schools have the funding that they need.
