INNER CITY SCHOOLS ARE LOSING OUT SAY ASSOCIATIONS

The government is treating inner city schools unfairly in its funding allocations for education support and training, local authority associations are due to tell junior education minister Robin Squire today.

Association of London Authorities education chairman Jim Mallory said the funds were allocated unfairly because of inaccurate predictions of how many schools would opt out of council control. Grant maintained schools were benefiting at the expense of those under council control.

Mr Mallory also expressed concern about future funding. He said education was likely to lose out because £10.3m of funding for education support and training would become part of the single regeneration budget, leaving Department for Education control to be distributed by the DoE.
