Education is vital to young people in West Bromwich because every child deserves the best possible start in life. I've spoken to parents and pupils and I've fought hard for funding for our local schools, including Sandwell College.
The Tories' planned cuts to school funding will means oversized classes, fewer teachers, fewer books and poorer equipment for future generations.
By 2019 schools in Sandwell will lose:
- £572 per pupil
- 754 teachers
At this election there is a real choice between a Tory Government which is slashing school funding or a local Labour MP, who will always fight for well-funded schools in our area.
Now more than ever you need a Labour MP standing up for you. If you would like more information about how the Tory school cuts will affect your local school, or get involved in my campaign - sign-up for updates here:
