Tory cuts in Birmingham are starving schools of the funding they need to deliver a first-class education. Crippling underfunding across our city is driving up class sizes and forcing schools to cut corners.
The latest figures from schoolscuts.org.uk drive home the urgent situation in schools across our city. We can't go on like this.
Schools in Birmingham will lose £59million in funding by 2020, that's a loss of £339 per pupil.
Labour has been fighting tooth-and-nail for a fair deal for Birmingham's schools. And we won’t stop until we get fair funding in line with other parts of Britain. Our Birmingham Youth Promise has helped 10,000 young people into work or training after leaving school or college.
Labour is rebuilding our city and making the right choices – let us finish the job.
