https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...rity-headteachers-investigation-a8569116.html The Department for Education (DfE) and ministers dismissed the concerns of headteachers - saying that the UK was “the third highest spender on education in the world”. But it has emerged from a BBC report that these figures – used to defend school spending – also included money spent by university students on tuition fees and parents on private school fees. And now the UK Statistics Authority, the watchdog which prevents the misleading use of figures, has launched an investigation of the government’s claim. Lies. damn lies and DFE (Tory) statistics?
