Education Cuts – Not!

Another slice of BBC bias as the context is lost in the headline grabbing highlights.

“Nottingham Academy will lose £224,000 of the £15.1m it received in 2016-17.”

Not surprising seeing as Nottingham received the highest share per pupil of “The Dedicated School Grant (DSG)” [http://www.sec-ed.co.uk/news/how-much-per-pupil-funding-will-your-school-get] outside London back in 2014.

Perhaps Nottingham schools were more deserving of the extra funding above Birmingham and Manchester, but keep in mind that the City of Nottingham and the schools within the city boundary equate to less than 50% of Nottingham’s urban conurbation, and that schools outside the city perform better WITH LESS FUNDING!

And that’s a view from inside the city.
