Fear of rising class sizes as schools face funding deficit
"Thousands of schools in England are already experiencing a funding squeeze, with nearly one in 10 reporting they will not be able to balance their books by the end of the year, figures passed to the Guardian show.
"About 2,000 primary and secondary schools are facing a deficit, with many forced to make redundancies and increase class sizes to cut costs - even before the widely predicted public spending cuts hit the education budget.
"The Liberal Democrats, who obtained the figures under the Freedom of Information Act, said the findings are the "tip of the iceberg" and that school standards will decline to levels not seen since the 1980s if education budgets are not protected in the looming cuts."
