I’m backing more funding for schools

Dear Sir, — I was very pleased to read in last week’s Chronicle that Fiona Bruce has spoken in Parliament about the poor funding received by Cheshire East schools and quoted one head teacher as saying: “The Government must stop misleading the country by stating that record amounts are being spent on education when, according to the institute for Fiscal Studies, since 2010, in Cheshire East the amount spent per child has fallen in real terms by 8%”.
I fully support the campaign for better funding for local schools and urge readers to sign the petition at petition.parliament.uk, searching for “increase funding for schools”.
