    Schools need more ‘meaningful investment’ to try to stem the financial crisis and more funding commitments for SEND if there is any hope to balance the books in the future:

    ‘The depth of the school funding crisis has been laid bare in documents seen by Tes detailing the gaping holes in education budgets across the country.

    The freedom of information responses reveal the substantial deficits in many councils’ schools budgets and suggest that dozens of areas will stay in the red for years to come.

    The news comes amid dire warnings over the state of school funding, with unions claiming that four out of five schools will receive less money per pupil in 2020 than in 2015.’


    What are your thoughts about the school financial crisis? Do you think schools will ever be able to balance their budgets in the future?

    Only once/if they ever dismantle the overly heavy emphasis on higher and middle management - a return to how shcools operated 30 years ago.
