Rebuild Our Schools!
Before the elections in 2010, the Labour Government had rubber stamped 26 school building programmes for Liverpool’s schools. These plans, worth a total of £350million investment into our schools, would have rebuilt some of the crumbling classrooms that Liverpool children have to put up with every day.
They would have provided state-of-the-art facilities where pupils could learn, and learning environments which would have given a huge boost to our young learners. But after the election – and with the help and full support of the Lib Dems – the first thing the Tories did was to cancel all 26 school rebuilding projects. Nothing has happened since then. Despite warm words from the Government, there has been absolutely no action. Liverpool Labour are calling on the Government to invest in Liverpool’s schools. Some of our schools are in a chronic state of disrepair, and urgently need work to bring them up to standard. We will campaign for a new deal, to provide better schools for the future.
