92% of our schools are under funded - Vote Liberal Democrats for change


Schools in West Dorset will have seen their budgets cut by more than £3 million in real terms since 2015. For this 2019/20 academic year, 92% of schools in West Dorset were faced with a funding shortfall.

Our children and grandchildren deserve a bright future. And that is exactly what a vote for the Edward Morello and the Liberal Democrats in West Dorset offers.

 

Our children and grandchildren deserve a bright future. And that is exactly what a vote for the Edward Morello and the Liberal Democrats in West Dorset offers.

The Liberal Democrats and Edward Morello will properly invest in our schools. Allowing teachers to teach and students to thrive. For too long Conservative cuts to our education system have been damaging our next generation’s future.

  • Reverse the Conservative school cuts

Schools are struggling to afford basic supplies and teachers are being put under impossible pressure. A Liberal Democrat government will deliver an emergency £2 million cash injection.
Figures from the National Education Union show that for this year (2019/20), schools in West Dorset will have seen their budgets cut by more than £3 million in real terms since 2015. For this 2019/20 academic year, 92% of schools in West Dorset were faced with a funding shortfall.

  • Allow teachers to teach

Teachers should be able to focus on delivering a high-quality education to their pupils. The Liberal Democrats will recruit 20,000 more teachers as part of an extra £10 billion a year for schools.

  • Provide support for those who need it most

Too many schools do not have the special needs provision some of our most vulnerable children deserve. We cannot fail our children.

  • 35 hours free childcare from 9 months old

Families work hard to provide a good life for their children, and childcare is a major expense. The Liberal Democrats will provide 35 hours free childcare from the age of 9 months to relieve pressure from parents who want the best for their children.

  • Education is for everyone

A skills wallet of £10,000 will be available for every to every adult throughout their lives to develop the skills they need.

 

It’s time for change. Reject the Tory cuts that have damaged our children’s prospects, and vote Liberal Democrat for a brighter future. One where education is inclusive and for all.
