A survey by the BBC of local education authorities has found schools

nationally are making around 760 teachers redundant as a result of the

funding shortfall, Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

Schools minister David Miliband said the numbers were not as high as

originally claimed.

'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'.
