CUTS to school budgets is a very emotional issue as well as a political one.

It is times like this that this reporter paid more attention in his economic classes at university.

The website https://schoolcuts.org.uk reports that: “After 14 years of chronic Government cuts, 70% of schools in England have less funding in real terms than in 2010“.

We entered the name of every school in Harlow and here is what it said:

I’m actually shocked and appalled that the situation is so dire for schools. Robert Halfon should be ashamed of himself for taking a photo opportunity with children and lying to their faces about new funding when the truth is right here to see. Year on year cuts for schools and services and as soon as we are in the midst of an election he tries to fools us with new funding for schools. It’s disgraceful and shameful!!! The poor kids are the ones that suffer as these cuts are having an impact on their futures and the future of this country. We need radical change in the parliament and neither the tories or the Labour Party are able to deliver that. So I ask you all where does that leave us???

I’m surprised by this story as I thought the editor for your Harlow was a secret conservative councilor as when I make an comment against the council it gets deleted

"Conservative" means conserve. In this instance it simply means conserve money at all costs. These figures confirm that !!

The problem is not just funding. Schools are turning to academies and being run like a business. Kingsmoor academy made so many staff redundant recently due to it being in debt however at the same time they had enough funds to appoint a assistant Finance Director with a starting salary of £150k So they chose to lose front line teaching staff in favour of paying a large wage to the people at the top. They promoted the current head teacher to Trust headteacher at the same time as redundancies too. It’s criminal! Funding is not just the problem. It’s where schools decide to spend the money is a issue too. The CEO of Kingsmoor academies is probably earning close to £200k plus ! It’s a joke that our kids of the future are being mugged off.

YH how about giving us an explanation as to why the amount per pupil varies so much, please. And why not include a comment from our MP given you publish next to this article his praise for an increase in govt funding

A disgraceful level of cuts in £'s per pupil and in the overall funding. More cuts than Edward Scissorhands with a Tory Government.

Peter Henegan, that’s pretty obvious isn’t it? It’s down to how many pupils are in the school.

Excellent all schools should be private and paid for by parents.
