NAHT comments on Parentkind report into parents' financial contributions to schools

Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders' union NAHT, said:

“This report shows how damaging cuts to education funding have been. It is not right that schools should be forced to rely on parents for basic supplies. Parents rightly expect their tax money to be invested in the services their families rely on, and they should not be required to pay twice. Parents are tired of the government telling them there’s more money in education than ever before, when what they see with their own eyes every day proves that it’s just not enough.

“School funding is a public service cash crisis that isn’t going away. It’s still a doorstep issue for voters, and until the Treasury announces more money for education, school leaders, governors, parents and others will continue to make their voices heard.”
