“There are crises like teacher recruitment and the £3 billion of cuts the government expects schools to make, that should not be forgotten during the election campaign. Delay could have disastrous consequences for children and for schools.” Leader a teaching union.

I really think we have a chance here to try and make a change for our children by ensuring schools are funded properly.

Really helpful post - I will be writing to my MP and signing the petition

This video just released by National Association of Head Teachers sums up all the problems to do with school funding that we face today. It's really worrying for a parent to see these figures. What do others think?

Surely it's time to push the government to start spending rather than cutting if we want our children to be properly educated. Share the video wherever you can.
