Responding to a Guardian investigation which found one in five school buildings in England require urgent repairs, Liberal Democrat Shadow Education Secretary Layla Moran said:
“It is scandalous that children across the country are being forced to sit in crumbling school buildings, potentially putting them at risk.
“The Conservatives have continually failed to address this problem. They do not care about our children’s education and are happy for them to learn in Dickensian conditions.
“The Liberal Democrats have a plan to properly invest in schools, give local authorities the powers and funding they need to make vital changes and build a brighter future for our country.”
