Plans to bring A-levels back to Knowsley abandoned

Neill Dunne, Liverpool Socialist Party

Education chiefs have abandoned plans to bring back A-level provision into the borough of Knowsley, Liverpool. So the education committee, founded with a 1 million fund last year, has decided that it will do nothing.

The demise and decline of education standards in this borough is partly due to the Labour-run council using the area as an experiment for private funding initiatives.

Knowsley council has allowed 'academisation' to happen on its watch, and prioritised PFI-run schools with good pass rates and high interest. Students in Knowsley have had their life prospects diminished.

It has also become known that Knowsley council adult social care service could also be privatised and hundreds of jobs lost under an evaluation of how the service is run.

Knowsley council has already made 15 million of cuts this year alone while upping council tax by 4.99%.

The only answer for Knowsley residents is a Corbyn-led, socialist government and the removal of the crony, New Labour Knowsley council, which needs to discover the true meaning of what the Labour Party should stand for in a deprived area such as Knowsley.
