End of subsidised transport to access further education for 16+ age group from low income families

east-sussex-logoESCC are proposing to end subsidised transport to those age 16+ from low income families to access Further Education or training.This is a cruel and idiotic cut that will have far reaching affects for those children who may now have to drop out of FE and yet saves very little money for ESCC. This will especially hit those who live in rural areas.

More details here and a link to questionnaire, please respond to ESCC consultation:
