Wokingham Libdems call for better funding for Wokingham's Schools

Cllr Beth Rowland (South Lake ward) has submitted a motion to Wokingham Borough council's Full Council Meeting to be held, this Thursday. She is calling for the Council to take action to try and improve funding for our Borough's schools. Local Lib Dems do not think it is good enough to just accept the unfair funding for Wokingham's schools that the government provides. Our pupils deserve better, our schools are under great financial pressure and the Council needs to be taking a lead in improving this situation.

Beth has also asked a questions about the Council's view on the Conservative government's policy for all schools to become academies and this question reflects the Lib Dems group's concerns about how this policy will affect the future of our Boroughs schools. It is an issue that could be debated within our local community and our views and concerns then fed back to the government.
