What is the maximum we should allocate to one pupil given the overall school deficit and lack of local authority cash? Average per pupil is about 6k so how many times that much should we allow? Do you agree with spending say 100k on one child who will never be employable? I often wonder why there is so much more need now. I suppose some of those with medical needs would have expired in my day, but when I went to school 1949-63 I do not recall ANY behaviour troubles in my school, nor was anyone on my council estate street sent away, which is, I believe what happened to those out of parental control as a rule. I also do not remember any bullying as I would have been the prime target ( at the top of the class and not the least interested in pop culture like the rest ) . Why are so many now out of the control of their parents...is it diet, or stress of too many exams, social media or what?
