Fairer Funding For Schools

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

Education funding in the UK is far from fair. There are many areas across the UK that fall far from the average spend per child. Education should not be a postcode lottery. I live in Devon. We receive nearly 300 pounds less than the national average per child across the board. Our schools are struggling. They have already been doing too much with too little and many are now looking at opening only 4 days a week. Can you honestly say that our children receiving 4/5 of the education they used to will not effect them? How will parents who work cope with the child care and how will employers cope with these new demands on their staff? The future and current economy will be seriously impacted by this. My children are asking me why they are worth less. In fact my daughter has begged me to do this petition. Please help my children fight for their right to an education.
