A guide through the funding jungle

18th July 1997 at 01:00
Most governors, teachers and parents know that school funding has become a maze. When they want to complain or argue about it, plead for more, or simply understand how it works, they are handicapped by not knowing how much money is available and where it comes from; who makes the decisions and when; how a school's share is calculated; what special and other sources of money there are beyond the budget; where funds for capital works come from, and so on.

A new publication from the Campaign for State Education answers all these questions. School Funding: a Path through the Jungle by Margaret Tulloch is a comprehensive guide in simple language and includes a glossary of technical terms and examples of how school budgets are calculated. This 48-page guide, packed with information, costs only Pounds 5 (including pp) from CASE, 158 Durham Road, Wimbledon, London SW20 ODG
