EMA future in jeopardy

9th July 2010 at 01:00

The Treasury is considering the future of the pound;30-per week education maintenance allowance (EMA) as part of its spending cuts. Officials have earmarked the allowance, awarded to poorer students to keep them in education, for possible abolition but are awaiting opinions of the further education sector and the general public. Views will feed into the spending review due on October 20.
