Support Our Schools, Increase the Education Budget Now

This petition had 1,734 supporters

When the SDLP recently received a letter from a local Principal saying that their school was in financial trouble, we were both worried and alarmed.

Children only have one childhood and we cannot allow political foot dragging to put our children's educational development at risk. Every delay and every cut impacts our children's opportunity to learn, grow and have a happy, healthy childhood. The failure to form an Executive however means that in these past few weeks we have already seen a number of support programmes abolished, and teachers and specialists are warning that more will disappear. We believe that when those who set the budgets ignore the experts who are warning that our schools system is in crisis,it is time to speak up.

We would respectfully ask that if you support this call, that you sign this petition calling on the Secretary of State to take immediate action to ensure that our schools are properly funded. Please take one moment and lend your support to our campaign.
