A plan to improve schools

It’s a sad fact that Greenwich isn’t blessed with many good state maintained schools. Yet education is the most powerful means by which our children can be given the freedom to shape their future. File 236

The next Conservative Council will close the educational gap between the fortunate and the forgotten, by:  
  • Building new schools
  • Shifting the balance of power away from the local bureaucrats and towards parents
  • Allowing new schools to be established
  • Encouraging smaller schools
  Charlton’s Conservative team member Richard Shackleton said: “Conservatives – both nationally and locally - will stop the decline in standards and create the excellent schools our children deserve. There must be change...and soon.”
