Tories must reverse cuts to school budgets not open grammar schools - Farron

Responding to Theresa May's plans for a wave of new grammar schools, Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

"If the Conservatives care about our children's education they should reverse their cuts to school budgets. We need to improve all schools not just let some become grammars. Too many pupils are let down by a divisive system that doesn't work.

"The Conservatives have to stop harking back to a bygone era - grammar schools are not the answer to raising standards in our children's schools."
