No more cuts!

The City Chambers quadrangle was fairly full with hundreds of children and parents this afternoon - and there was a very, very clear message from all those in attendance: no more cuts!

... quite right too.

Especially when you consider that no one - and I mean no one - is contesting that the City of Edinburgh Council has MORE revenue funding this year than last.

So why are schools still having their budgets slashed by 1% - which is around a £10,000 reduction for an average primary school, and up to a £40,000 reduction for a larger secondary school?

It's surely not all based on that incredibly accurate Long Term Financial Plan?

Whatever - no need to worry though, because:

"they actually will not feel, thankfully, the effect of this 1%"
