Education - a cut below?

If educational funding per child has doubled since 1997 in real terms and there are an extra 200,000 adults in classrooms, why do Universities need to reduce entry criteria for students from challenging schools whose full potential has not been realised!?!

It's worse than that. For years Nulab have been yapping on about wanting to spend as much per pupil in the state sector as in the private sector. It is now quite clearly the case that the total cost (including quangos) per state pupil is = the school fees of better value/cheaper private schools.

But Mark, when was education ever Labour's priority? They would have scrapped Comprehensives and reintroduced Grammar Schools if they had wanted results.

Spending is only a priority for keeping union brothers and sisters off unemployment benefits!
