STOP UNDERFUNDING DEVON'S SCHOOLS

STOP UNDERFUNDING DEVON'S SCHOOLS

We urge Devon County Council to challenge the Government to fully fund Devon children’s education in line with the rest of the country.

Further to this, we ask the County Council to reconsider their decision to cut £33 per child which further exacerbates the situation.

Why is this important?

We, the undersigned, deplore the continued underfunding of Devon’s schools. This policy disadvantages both the children of Devon and the future prosperity of the county.

The current funding formula has imposed cuts to Teaching Assistants which will have a negative effect on both the inclusion of Special Educational Needs children and the development of ‘Gifted and Talented’ children.

The continued underfunding of Devon Schools will undoubtedly inhibit the future prosperity of the County, goes against the policy of inclusion and will impact on the social fabric of generations to come.

Reasons for signing

  • Because our kids need a good education, money helps with this.
  • Devon is UNDERFUNDED!!
  • I am shocked at the day DCC funds, supports and improves school and education across the county. Having worked in education in other areas of the country, a huge difference between funding in schools is noticeable. Hold DCC to account!
