The graph above shows 2010-11’s funding arrangements for Free Schools/Academies & Children/Families in comparison with the previous year (2009-10).
What is clear is this, academies/free schools received an additional £855,000,000 funding in 2010-11. But at the same time, Children & Families received £829,000,000 less.
It leaves the government in the curiously deceitful position of claiming that overall net expenditure on these items increased. But this hides the truth that plenty of real cuts take place in education but that extra monies are needed for the Tories projects that conspire in the social engineering of our children.
