‘Have your say on schools funding’

East Antrim MLA Alastair Ross has encouraged parents, teachers, governors and staff in primary and post-primary schools across the constituency to respond to the Department of Education’s public consultation on changes to the Common Funding Scheme.

“We need to move away from a culture where succeeding schools find their funding reduced for the simple reason that they are successful,” he said.

People have until October 18 to submit responses to the department.
