Shadow Education Minister frustrated with 'complex and obscure' school funding system

Suzy Davies AM, Shadow Minister for Education, has expressed her frustration with seeing more schools hit the headlines today over a chronic lack of funding. She’s commented:

“Teachers and schools are desperately crying out for better funding from the Welsh Labour Government, but their pleas are repeatedly falling on deaf ears. 

“This is the next generation of Wales we’re raising and the Welsh Government must do more to give them the best possible start and access to opportunities. The complex and obscure routes through which schools are funded do not make that job any easier and are raised as a real cause for concern by the Children, Young People and Education Committee in their hard-hitting report this week.

“That’s why Welsh Conservatives have a long-standing policy to fund schools more directly, bringing transparency and clarity to how funding is decided and, ultimately, to get money straight into the classroom.”
