Cornish Schools In Line For Funding Boost
7:00am 29th June 2013
Cornish schools are in line for a much needed funding boost after the Chancellor promised to change the way cash is dished out for pupils across the country.
In Wednesday's budget, George Osborne said it is not fair rural areas get less than cities.
North Cornwall MP Dan Rogerson has been calling for a new system for years: "Small schools, village schools, do a great job of keeping that education rooted in those village communities and providing a great standard of education so it's key that the basic level of funding that goes per school is big enough to allow them to carry on doing the good job that they're doing.
"It's not about trying to take money away from other parts of the country but I think what we do need to know is that the funding formula is not only fair, but that that it's actually delivered. So, what I want to make sure is that this coalition government does better on that and actually delivers in line with the needs of areas like ours."
