Councillor welcomes rise in Cambridgeshire’s educational funding
The Government announcing a consultation that will result in Cambridgeshire’s schools per pupil funding – the lowest funded in the country – rising by about £20m in 2015/16 really is excellent news.
The poor state of county educational funding from central government has been shameful over quite a few years.
I am delighted that this imbalance is eventually to be at least partially put right.
The young people of Cambridgeshire deserve at least equal treatment with their peers from other counties.
