education spending may be cut by 25%

6 July 2010

In the Emergency Budget, the Chancellor, George Osborne, said that education spending could fall by 25% over the next four years.

Whilst the Coalition had promised to protect front line spending on schools for one year, teaching unions are already opposing the 'back office' cuts, which they say will still have a detrimental effect on childrens' education. Furthermore, in light of imminent cuts, it is difficult to see how the Government will make its flagship policies a reality.

It remains to be seen whether the Government will have sufficient funding to pay for all 'outstanding' schools to become academies and allow parents and teachers to establish hundreds of their own 'free schools'.
