Lib Dems vow £25 million for Enfield schools
April 27 2010
The Liberal Democrats have pledged to give schools in Enfield an additional £25 million if they win the forthcoming general election, a local news report has said.
According to the Enfield Independent, the sum, which is part of a £2.5 billion national pot, will be targeted at the poorest pupils aiming to raise their funding to private school levels.
Edmonton Lib Dem campaigner Iarla Kilbane-Dawe said that education is the "key" to building a fair society.
"Our plans will put £25 million into Enfield's schools, and head teachers will be able to use that money on a whole range of measures to help all pupils and all schools," Ms Kilbane-Dawe was quoted as saying by the publication.
In other news, Nick Clegg has promised funds to reduce class sizes if his party assumes power in May, according to the BBC.
The Lib Dem leader said the money would allow primary school pupils to attend lessons in classes of "just 20 pupils".
