Here are some recent news stories around the web regarding school funding:-
An Oldfield Park dad said his children were left "stressed and upset" on the first day of school
A Bath parent has formally complained to the council about the “appalling” state of school bus services in his area.
The Oldfield Park dad said his children were left “stressed and upset” on the first day of school after several bus services were withdrawn as a result of cuts to council funding.
The man, who does not want to be named, said his daughter used to have the choice of catching four different buses to Ralph Allen School, but the 20A, 20C, RA3 and RA4 have all disappeared.
And when she came to take her little brother to school for the first time, the best alternative, a university service run by First Bus, was jam-packed, he said.[ Read more... ]
Plans to build 24 new and replacement schools in Somerset have been delayed by council funding cuts.
Somerset County Council recently voted to approve £15m of cuts to more than 70 different services.
The council had planned to spend £140m on building new schools in the next four years, with £116m of that being paid for by council borrowing.
It has now said the programme to build new schools will continue at a "slower pace than previously anticipated".
The planned schools include seven in Taunton, four in Bridgwater and three in Yeovil.
Burnham-on-Sea, Castle Cary, Chard, Crewkerne, Frome, Highbridge, Ilminster, Shepton Mallet, Somerton, Street and Wells will each get one new school.[ Read more... ]
'Parents will be horrified to learn of damage done to sixth forms and colleges by funding cuts'

Courses have been closed, student support has been cut, and teaching provision has reduced as a result of the real-terms cuts to further education, education unions have warned.
Analysis from IFS has revealed that funding per student in sixth forms has fallen by more than a fifth (21 per cent) per student since 2010-11 – and it remains lower than at any point since 2002-03.[ Read more... ]
