School and college funding: Education Committee questions education unions and school and college leaders – today Tuesday 6 November at 10am
The Education Committee is to question education trade unions and school and college leaders as part of its inquiry into school and college funding.
The meeting will focus on the management of school and college finances, the long-term changes needed to the funding system and reaction to the Budget.
The inquiry is being held to determine what the Department for Education’s priorities should be for the next Spending Review period and whether schools and colleges would benefit from a 10-year spending plan.
A key question that needs to be addressed quite soon (the elephant in the room) is how much direct funding is going to schools and colleges to deliver on the Gatsby benchmarks and careers guidance for young people?
