Shadow Education Minister Tracy Brabin added her support to James Frith’s campaign against school cuts at a meeting in Bury last week.
Tracy was in Bury to meet local parents, teachers and school leaders to discuss education policy at a meeting hosted by Bury North MP James Frith. 100 people attended to discuss everything from early years to schools, colleges and higher education.
Speaking after the event, Tracy said:
“The cuts to our schools have been devastating and have seriously impacted their ability to provide the highest possible standard of education for our children. Labour’s plan is to create a National Education Service providing a world class education, free at the point of use, from cradle to grave. This includes giving schools the resources they need to deliver the best outcomes for all children.”
“I am extremely grateful for Tracy coming to Bury to hear directly from parents and those working in our nurseries, schools and colleges about the impact cuts are having and the policies needed to do better. I will be writing up the comments and ideas proposed and sending them to both the Labour and Conservative education teams and the Education Select Committee on which I sit.”
