Cheshire East Labour councillors met on Saturday to look at their response
to the Conservative government cuts to education across the Borough. The
loss of a million pounds is punitive and hits schools which have for many
years been some of the best in the country. Only a handful of primary
schools have not had their finances cut.
Poynton loses the most at £-165k, followed by Fallibroome £-156, both in
Tory held council seats.
Sam Corcoran, Labour Councillor for Sandbach Heath & East said, "There is
little that is fair about yet another cut masked as a restructuring of
funding. Cheshire East schools were already some of the least well funded in
Like the NHS, education services are targeted by the Conservative cuts
Irene Faseyi, Labour Councillor for Crewe Central, said, "Labour councillors
stand in unity with the raft of angry headteachers who are trying to deliver
top quality education to our children. Education like A&E facilities should
be top priorities. Once again a real lack of leadership and imaginative
thinking from our Conservative Council is punishing the hardworking Cheshire
East tax payer."
