Nick Gibb - Minister for Schools - grilled on school funding.

BBC reporter Charlie Stayt is being praised for grilling the Conservative minister for schools after over 7,000 headteachers wrote a letter to parents about a "funding crisis" facing schools in England.

Nick Gibb appeared on BBC Breakfast to talk about the government's education plans and funding for schools. 

Gibb talked about providing national buying schemes to help deal with the cost of energy, computers and "so on" and providing school resource advisors to focus on budget for the schools that need it. In addition, he added that the government decided to tackle the "historic budget deficit" by "prioritising five -16 education," which he admitted meant that "there is a squeeze on post-16 spending."

 

 

He added that the government is "giving more money for every pupil in every school" and are "distributing funding in a fairer way" - for students between the ages of five and 16.
