School funding cuts could deny children a decent future says UNISON

Responding to government plans to reform school funding UNISON head of education Jon Richards said: “Schools that are already underfunded will get much less than they’d hoped for.

“Other highly rated schools in better resourced areas will see their budgets cut further still to fund those currently failing.

“Good education doesn’t come cheap. Schools need proper investment. Heads should not be forced to compete against each other to give children a decent future.”
