Tories fail another schools test

H&F council has not been given a share of national funding for rebuilding primary schools - because of incompetence and poor planning.

The council has been told to get its act together before it will be allowed to receive its share of the funding so that government inspectors are assured it will be spent properly.

Following the controversy over H&F Tories' plans for secondary education, when attempts to close Hurlingham and Chelsea School and merge Henry Compton and Fulham Cross Schools met opposition from parents, teachers and pupils alike, this latest failure shows that the Tories simply cannot be trusted with education at any level.
