Angela Rayner quotes

The way that children from an ordinary working class background, like mine, get a good education is to make sure the investment in the teaching is there. Schools are facing an 8% cut. We've never had it where headteachers are writing to parents, getting letters at home saying they're going to have to cut teaching staff.feedback

The free schools programme has been proven to be an enormously expensive and inefficient way to create school places. Today's announcement alone almost certainly comes with an huge price tag, without necessarily even providing new school places in the areas that need them most. And this is at a time when existing schools are facing a severe funding crisis.feedback

I completely understand the difficulties that working parents face - I did myself as a single mum. But it's really, really important that we set that principle that actually children should attend school in term-time. There are exceptional circumstances, there is discretion at the moment. But if all parents took their children out of school in term-time because it was cheaper to get a holiday that way, then it would be chaos in our schools and it would affect all children.feedback

By investing in our education system and providing free school meals for every primary school child, we will remove the stigma attached to free school meals, and improve health and attainment for all children.feedback

The Tories claim they're protecting Sure Start, but they're not. They use tricky accounting methods – like pointing to buildings which are still open but which are running much-reduced services – to try to pull the wool over people's eyes.feedback

The local school bus is now being replaced by the grammar school Uber. But when they are breaking their promise to protect school funding and heads are facing the worst cuts in a generation, it's unbelievable that they think 'cash for cabs' is a good use of money. While we're paying taxes for taxis, disabled teenagers are being left to fend for themselves and other kids are forced to change school for lack of transport. If this idea is the best that [education secretary] Justine Greening can come up with then she's the one who should be getting a taxi for one.feedback

The money is being spent on a vanity project with no evidence it will help children move on from socially deprived backgrounds. I think it's disgusting. It is not about giving places to local children that need schools, it's about sucking money out of the state sector, which has already seen a £3bn cut and putting it into a system [with] no evidence to suggest it will help our children. It is not parents who choose, these schools select the pupils. It will make the education system worse for most of the children in our system.feedback

The government has already been forced into a humiliating climb down on their dangerous plans to weaken protections for vulnerable children this week. Now we want to make sure they keep their promises to refugee children as well. With dozens of their own MPs ready to join the opposition on this, they need to listen before it's too late.feedback

This is now throwing more good money after bad. It will do nothing to address the shortage of available school places.feedback
