Our schools are crying for help

February 8, 2018 7:30 PM

London Meed School"Every teacher, other member of staff, School Governor, parent and pupil knows that there is a crisis in the funding of their local school in West Sussex", says Robert Eggleston, Chair of Burgess Hill Liberal Democrats. "In recent meetings I have had with the head teachers of Burgess Hill schools it is clear how the pressure on school budgets is affecting the delivery of services and morale.

Every job or career, whether in the private, public or voluntary sector, begins with the input children get from home. But a teacher then does so much more to bring out the best in a child. School teachers are at the forefront of everything and they need more recognition for waht they do. When schools in West Sussex highlight the lack of funding, by sending the government the bill for the £191m budget shortfall, this is not an 'absurd stunt' as the Tory MP likes to call it. No, it is a cry for help. Well it is about time that this cry for help was heard."
