Cuts to Education - The Current Situation
- AuthorBeverley Watkins
Following the recent announcement that an approximate £32million worth of funding cuts could hit Bristol schools, parents have been taking a stand; by sitting down at picnics across the centre on 26 May 2017. The picnics, that were held in four separate locations on Friday afternoon, were designed to bring the issue of threats to education funding to a wider audience.
Many parents also showed their support through the 6,000-strong crowd that marched against the proposed cuts to education last weekend. The protest saw parents, staff and union members take to the main streets of Bristol, highlighting not only the vast amount of support there is for Bristol schools, but also the importance of having enough resources to meet the needs of all children, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.
