Parents don’t want to see their kids crammed into bulging classes, like sardines in a tin.
But on Boris Johnson’s watch, that’s exactly what’s happening.
Since the Tories took office, the number of pupils in super-size classes of over 30 kids has increased by 20 per cent.
New analysis of Government figures published by my office today shows that there are kids in classrooms of more than 40, 50, 60, even 70 pupils – in a single class.
How can children, crammed into classrooms like sardines in a tin, be expected to catch up on their lost learning?
It’s an outrage.
Labour has put forward a plan – our Children’s Recovery Plan – to deal with the immediate issues facing our schools.
It should be adopted without delay by the Government, who have no plan for our schools.
