‘Overwhelming evidence’ of school funding problems across Wales
UCAC education union has welcomed the publication today (10/07/19) of the 'School Funding in Wales' report by the National Assembly for Wales’s Children, Young People and Education Committee.
Dilwyn Roberts-Young, UCAC’s General Secretary said “The Committee has conducted its research, has received a deluge of evidence, and has come to the conclusion that ‘there is not enough money going into the education system in Wales and not enough finding its way to schools’. UCAC agrees whole-heartedly with that conclusion.
“Schools are unable to afford the numbers of staff that they require to provide a high-quality education. In turn, that means increasing class sizes, fewer teaching support staff and less support for vulnerable learners.
