Education opens doors. It changes lives. It transforms communities. Andrew George is passionate about making sure that Cornwall’s young people get the education they need and deserve.
Since 2015, an astonishing £13 million pounds has been stripped out of this constituency’s education budget. How could anyone think that is a good way to save money?
Andrew went to state schools in Mullion, Cury and Helston: a far cry from the Old Etonians in charge in Westminster. He knows the importance of a full and inspirational education for all.
The Lib Dems are the party for education, committed to reversing the damaging Conservative cuts. It’s a simple truth that an investment in education is an investment in the future.
St Ives isn’t a wealthy constituency. By giving children choices, education can end the cycle of poverty that some communities have suffered from since their industries closed. Andrew believes every child deserves the chance of a world-class education, and that those who need extra help get it.
Education doesn’t end with school. The Liberal Democrats will give every a £10,000 “skills wallet” for lifelong learning.
Andrew hasn’t forgotten his old school – he recently successfully campaigned for a re-build at Helston. He won’t forget your kids’ schools, either, but will strive to ensure every school in his constituency has the staff and resources it needs.
