  • Lib Dem members on Save Our Schools march
    Article: Apr 25, 2018

    L ib Dem County Councillor Kirsty Lord and local Lib Dem campaigner Alison Bennett joined the Save Our Schools march in Worthing protesting against the pitifully low funding for schools in our area. West Sussex is the lowest funded county council in the country, receiving around £11.8 million less than similar authorities, and £15.1 million less than the average (WSCC). Our schools and our pupils are suffering as a result. Lib Dems would invest an additional £7 billion in education to end the inequalities in funding and give all our young people the chance to suceed in life they deserve.
