Petition to stop cuts to education funding at 18
I am writing to ask you to sign an important e-petition about the Government’s cuts to post-16 funding which can be found here.
The 17.5% cut in funding from September, for students who are already 18, will cut sixth form colleges’ total funding by a further 1.2%. This latest cut comes on top of the huge cuts already made in 16-19 education. In sixth form colleges jobs have been lost, pay has been frozen and cut in real terms, and working conditions have been attacked. If the petition gets at least 100,000 signatures, it will be considered for debate in the House of Commons and will also show politicians the strength of feeling on this issue.
Once you’ve signed the e-petition please forward it to friends and family who will share our concerns.
