When the largest outgoing in a school is wages, just imagine what the powers Gove handed over could do in order to balance the books. After 10 years of trying to balance the books, we eventually went into special measures. A whole new leadership team appeared and we received a good. After we got our badge of honour, redundancies ensued as our ‘special measures money’ had ran out and we were back in deficit. Yes, managers can be bad. But you can’t improve (or sustain) schools without adequate funding. Where do you think the wastage is in education? Where are bad managers spending money where good managers are not?
