School place breakthrough – thank you, Mr Balls!

Liam, Schools Secretary Ed Balls and school staff in Bordesley GreenThe Birmingham Mail has news today of a £40 million breakthrough in our campaign for 1,000 extra school places in inner city Birmingham. http://tinyurl.com/km84cs. I lobbied Ed on the need for extra places by bringing him to Bordesley Green to see the pressure on places for himself. Now, Ed has given the green light to £40 million more for local schools. We’re big winners. We’re now destined to have a new primary school in Bordesley Green in 2011/12 plus extra places at Thornton, Greet and Regents Park, with an additional 210 each, George Dixon with 105, and Hodge Hill, 91.
