Ross Pepper's plan for local schools
We need to protect and properly fund our local schools.
That’s the call from Lincolnshire Liberal Democrat campaigner Ross Pepper.
“This Government is once again trying to re-organise schooling - with their plans for more grammar schools,” said Mr Pepper.
“Teachers want the space to just get on with their jobs. For too long politicians have interfered with the way schools are run. We've seen grant maintained, academies, free schools and now grammar schools again. It's just more re- organisation. What matters is good sustained funding and strong educational results for our children.”
The Lib Dems, when in Government, pushed the ‘Pupil Premium’, which saw £millions invested in helping children full-fill their potential.
