£2million removed from schools :-(

Here's the political spin ...

... which does just prove my earlier accusation of truly appalling professional and political shroud-waving :-(

But sadly, here's what a 1% cut to devolved school budgets still actually means:

If the SNP/Lib-Dem Administration take a 1% cut to devolved school budgets it will have a significant impact on teaching and learning:
  • a 1% cut in school budgets means stripping £2million out of city schools
  • a 1% cut is around £10,000 for an average primary school
  • a 1% cut is up to £40,000 for a larger secondary school

Front-line services being reduced, during a year when revenue support has gone up by 1.76% ?

The city is being run by people who know the cost of everything and the value of nothing :-(
