Latest Round of Education cuts will exacerbate the pressure on our schools

With the announcement of the latest education cuts that schools will receive £56:00 less per pupil compared to last year this will inevitably put increasing pressure on our schools.
Pupils and teachers are just returning from their Summer break to be notified that their budgets would be far smaller than what they anticipated.

Once again it is the vulnerable, this time our children, who are being impacted by the chaos in N. Irelands finances.
This will undoubtedly have an immediate impact on the quality of education which our young people receive in this new school year, as well as the staff who will now face a worrying period of uncertainty

After last weeks announcement of the severe cuts to the Health Service and now this cut to frontline school services these budgetary cuts are clearly aimed at the vulnerable in society.
This is a direct result of the political stalemate at Stormont. We are half way through the financial year and there is still no financial budget for Northern Ireland. This means that piecemeal short term budgetary decisions are being taken to try and balance the books.

This is the latest in a growing list of examples of why Northern Ireland needs accountable Ministers in place so that these irrational decisions are not made.
