PARTIES COMPETE TO INCREASE BUDGET DELEGATION TO SCHOOLS

The government is considering trying to wrong-foot Labour by increasing the percentage of money councils are required to delegate to schools, says The Times Educational Supplement (p3).

Labour has adopted a policy to require councils to delegate 90% of the budget as opposed to the current minimum of 85%.

The Conservatives might top that by increasing the figure to 95% says the TES.

Alan Parker, education secretary at the Association of Metropolitan Authorities, says that increasingly schools do not want further delegation because it would involve them more in complicated arrangements to buy back services from local authorities.
