Stop Boris Johnson’s cuts to education & youth services!

This petition had 893 supporters

The Guardian has revealed that Boris Johnson is planning on cutting 90% of funding for schemes targeted at some of London most deprived and vulnerable young people. The Student Assembly Against Austerity calls upon Boris Johnson to scrap these plans. 

The plan would see Greater London authority investment in education and youth activity fall from £22.6m this year to £10.4m next year and £2.3m in the year 2016/2017.

Documents seen by the Guardian detail planned cuts to mentoring, volunteering, supplementary schooling, healthy eating and services for young people excluded from schools. 

We demand that these proposals to cut education and youth services are scrapped.
