budget cuts: what would they mean to education?
Schools are at considerable risk in the coming public-sector budget cuts, many teachers worry. So reports the Scotsman today, referring to a survey by watchdog organization Children in Scotland, the results of which are to be published tomorrow. Teachers, and families too, observe that cuts to education would greatly impede young people’s social mobility, particularly those children in deprived circumstances. Budget discussions will be underway soon, so this is good reading for every parent and carer.
