Education Funding In Coventry And Nationally

EDM number 69 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Cunningham on 27/06/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Public expenditure and Schools.

That this House welcomes the decision to create a fairer funding formula for schools across the UK; is concerned that whilst funding for some local authority schools will increase, other local authorities will see a reduction in school funding; is further concerned that Coventry schools will face cuts of 2.4 per cent; regrets that this will leave schools in Coventry with a £29 million deficit by 2020 and that schools across the UK will be left with a £3 billion deficit by 2020; is concerned that cuts on such a scale would hit staff numbers and impact on the standard of education provided to students, not just in Coventry but across the UK; and calls on the Government to reconsider its plans and to fund an education system that will not see funding cut from any schools and that works for all children.

This motion has been signed by a total of 5 MPs.
