Education system at risk by school cutbacks

The stability of England’s education system is being threatened by the £3bn funding savings that the government is proposing.
The General secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, Russell Hobby, says ministers should no longer be allowed to claim school funding is protected.
The Department for Education has said school funding is at record levels.
But the Institute of Fiscal Studies says this claim does not tell the whole story or take account of the impact of cost pressures on per pupil funding.
It has just published research which says to keep school funding at its present levels in real terms, an extra £2bn will be needed between 2017 and 2022.
