Where to Spend? Where to Cut?

Description

What does the comprehensive spending review mean for education? A panel of experts and the SchoolsWorld audience debate what the spending review will mean for schools and staff, in a live, online, interactive debate.

Presented by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, and covering issues including what the review means for school buildings and resources, as well as school staff, their pensions and future training, the video sees the SchoolsWorld online audience vote on the issues as they are debated, and put their comments and questions to the panel.

The panel, including Sir William Atkinson, headteacher of Phoenix High School, Jenny Davies, headteacher of The Westborough Schoool, and Dr Mary Bousted, general secretary of the ATL, discuss the possible impact of the spending review, and the unique challenges and opportunities schools now face.

William Simmonds, chief executive of NASBM, Dale Bassett, research director of think tank Reform, and Michael Shaw, TES opinion editor, join them in debating the issues around how to deliver high quality education for less.
