Battle for more Funding Continues

The school funding battle continues...

It is so disappointing to continue to see an increase in negative education news stories. The reported issues all seem to stem from one core issue… school funding (or lack of)!

This morning, on BBC Breakfast news, it was reported that three families are currently taking their case against the Government to the High Court regarding lack of funding for their children who are have a range of learning difficulties. They will argue whether the lack of funding has been lawful and if the High Court rules in their favour, this may force the Government to have a re-think.

It is of paramount importance that children with SEND are given the same learning opportunities as their peers, however, it is apparent that these stories are typical of many more families, across the UK, experiencing the same issues.

Ultimately, there is no other answer, other than more funding must be allocated for SEND children, but is this possible with the demand for services ever increasing?

What are your thoughts? We’d love to hear them – send all comments to [email protected]
