Education secretary David Blunkett is expected to announce today that the private sector is putting together a£200m rescue package to help government tackle the backlog of schools repairs.

The Financial Times (p7) reports that the announcement points the way to a bigger role for the private sector in education and comes amid strike calls from teachers unions.

Kirklees and Stoke-on-Trent are mentioned as likely beneficiaries of the privately backed repair programme.
