Labour’s latest giveaway policy will force bosses to let staff ditch work so they can take lessons in any subject – The Sun
BOSSES will be forced to let their staff ditch work so they can take lessons in whatever they want under Labour’s latest giveaway policy.
Under the plans, being announced by Jeremy Corbyn tomorrow, workers will notch up “education time” over the course of the year in the same way they get their holidays.
They will be able to spend those weeks off in the classroom studying whatever they want – even if it has nothing to do with their job.
He will also announce plans for taxpayers to foot the bill to send school drop outs back to the classroom so they can get their A Levels.
While he will also commit the state to paying for every adult to study for six years at university level or higher.
The pledges are part of Labour’s plans to create a new “cradle to grave” education system.
Labour are also vowing to scrap Ofsted and SATs tests for primary school kids and to slash classroom sizes.
