Let’s Get Devon Schools Properly Funded!

At the moment the Government pays schools in Devon £290 a year LESS for each child than the national average. The Government have announced a new 'Fairer Funding' plan that means that around 200 schools in Devon will actually have their budget cut, while other schools will get a bit more. On top of that, the Conservatives running Devon County Council plan their own extra cut to schools, taking away £2.2 million. That is a £33 cut for every child.

I believe our children deserve the best education we can provide. They deserve to have the same level of funding as anywhere else in the country - not more cuts, whether from Theresa May's Government or the Conservatives at County Hall.

I call for Devon schools to be properly funded from Central Government and stop the local Conservatives' £2.2 million cut. Our children deserve nothing less!
