Overspending in Oz
More than half of New South Wales schools have exceeded their AU$3 million (pound;1.68m) budgets for new halls and libraries, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
Some 402 of the 730 school projects were over budget. Correspondence between state officials has revealed their frustration at not being able to reallocate funding from schools with more money than they need, to schools which are going short.
An email written in August revealed that schools would have to cancel or scale back their building projects if funding could not be reallocated.
