900 call for re­think on schools fund­ing

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

MORE than 900 peo­ple in Mac­cles­field and Poyn­ton have signed a pe­ti­tion call­ing for the Govern­ment to re­think its pro­posed fund­ing changes for schools.

The pro­pos­als, which the govern­ment claims make the na­tional fund­ing sys­tem fairer, would see a mil­lion pounds slashed from school bud­gets across the town, in­clud­ing ev­ery sin­gle sec­ondary school and all but six pri­maries.

A 1,500-sig­na­ture pe­ti­tion was handed to Par­lia­ment last month.
