Government spending on schools is set to drop for the first time since the 1990’s

The  Institute for Fiscal Studies say that schools funding has been well protected for the last two decades but this is set to drop by 6.5% in real terms over the course of this parliament.

The National Governors’ Association said that the money being provided by Government simply isn’t enough to educate our children.

“The Department for Education unfortunately doesn’t know how much it costs to educate a pupil whether it be a primary or secondary pupil,” Emma Knights, the association’s chief executive, on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

This is putting further strain on hard working teachers and in some cases is prompting them to leave the profession out of frustration, saying that they are  leaving something they love because quite simply there is not enough money to do the job properly.
