Fair funding for all Devon Schools

This petition had 142 supporters

Let's support our children and their education by demanding fair funding for our schools. 

Tavistock college along with many other schools under Devon County Councils control are struggling to make ends meet and are cutting essential staff in order to stay afloat.

Just to return Devon to the funding we had two years ago would take £24 million. Devon has gained less than £4 million. The %of GDP spent on education has reduced significantly over this parliament. The answer you will get is that more money is going into schools. However, there are more children! Also There is expenditure that has been unfunded ( pay awards, employer’s national insurance increases, new resources for the new curriculum and so on).
