Rennie: Swinney must step in to reverse cuts to Fife schools


Scottish Liberal Democrat leader and North East Fife MSP Willie Rennie is urging the Education Secretary to step in and reverse the brutal cuts to secondary schools in Fife.

Mr Rennie’s appeal to John Swinney MSP follows the announcement that the number of teachers in Fife will be cut to balance the books after secondary school budgets were cut by £1.28 million.

Mr Rennie said:

“It is the SNP Government’s decision to slash council budgets that has led to this whopping cut to school budgets.  

“The SNP claim that education is their top priority, but the evidence suggests otherwise. Taking away more than one point two million pounds from Fife secondary schools is in no way prioritising the education of our young people.

“If John Swinney is true to his word he will step in to prevent the cuts to teachers and the inevitable adverse impact on education in Fife.”
