NASUWT COMMENTS ON THE ISLE OF MAN GOVERNMENT BUDGET 2017/18

Commenting on the Isle of Man Government Budget for 2017/18, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the fastest growing teachers’ union in the Isle of Man, said:

“It is deeply disappointing that the Department of Education and Children’s budget is being cut in real terms yet again.

“This latest cut now means that since 2010 the Education Department’s budget has been cut by almost 29% when compared to RPI inflation.

“Teachers and the Education Department have worked incredibly hard against this backdrop of slash-and-burn, but a crisis is now developing as recruitment becomes ever more difficult.

“The Isle of Man Government must recognise that education underpins the whole economy and the future prosperity of the island.

“These savage cuts to education funding can only have a negative impact and are extremely short-sighted.

“The Government should be investing in the future, not selling young people short.

“The Isle of Man Government must act now to restore appropriate levels of funding to avert the looming crisis and safeguard the Isle of Man’s economic future.”
