nationally are making around 760 teachers redundant as a result of the
funding shortfall, Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.
'The fact that action has been taken at local level, to make sure that money
does get to the front line, has clearly helped a significant number of
schools', he told Today.
'We're concerned at every teacher redundancy and we'll be working with every
local authority helping teachers to find work'. But, he said, 'we're being
told by local education authorities that the situation is not much different
from last year'.
