Council rejects Lib Dem proposal for £2.5 million Education Fund

by Ian Yuill on 4 March, 2017

Photo of school pupilsAt its recent budget setting meeting, Aberdeen City Council rejected a proposal I made to create an Education Fund of £2.5 million. This extra money could have been used to make a real difference to the education of every single pupil in Aberdeen’s schools.

The Education Fund my Liberal Democrat colleagues and I proposed would have meant our local schools could have benefited from additional funding of:

Airyhall School          £39,405

Broomhill School         £43,512

Kaimhill School          £30,525

Harlaw Academy          £101,232

Hazlehead Academy        £89,244

Sadly Labour, Conservative, SNP and Independent councillors all failed to back our carefully-costed plan to invest in the education of our city’s children.
