Further education colleges on a cliff edge

Lucy has been quoted in The Guardian on cuts in further education for 16-19 year olds:Hulme_bridge.jpg

“It is simply not possible to build a 21st-century economy on falling investment in education. Yet this government is putting post-16 education on a cliff edge, harming opportunities for the next generation and holding our young people and our country back."

“Before the last election, Labour committed to protecting the whole education budget from the early years to 19, because we value the entire journey of a child through education, including early years and post-16. Under the Tories, these areas face cuts, putting four in 10 colleges under threat of closure.”
