Zahawi in denial over Covid in schools

Responding to Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi’s comments on Sunday Morning today, Liberal Democrat Education Spokesperson Munira Wilson MP said: “Zahawi is in denial about the level of Covid infections in schools, and his complacency is adding insult to injury for every child and parent.

“This Government has let down and abandoned our children time and time again over the past two years and history looks doomed to repeat itself. It’s clear they have no plan for dealing with rising numbers of infections and absences.

“Schools deserve a cast-iron guarantee that they will be given the resources they need to ensure no child will miss out on learning. Government incompetence cannot be allowed to disrupt their education further than it already has.”
