Government Response to Petition on School Funding Formula

I know that many of you have already signed the petition urging the government to reconsider their proposals for a national funding formula (if you haven’t, then please do spare a minute to do so by clicking here). If so, then like me you will have a received an email in response from the government.

This is a complicated issue and is only really beginning to be understood by most people – partly because schools have worked so hard to maintain the quality of their provision in the face of cuts to funding, but also because the government has done a good job of suggesting the cuts are somehow not real, or are not significant. I hope my responses at least help to provide some clarity.
