Petition Against Unfair Devolved School Budget Savings
- Wendy Alexander MSP
Our schools are doing all they can to be as successful and effective as possible. But the savings each head teacher is having to make across Renfrewshire total over £2.5 million this year hitting classroom supplies, teacher staffing and support staffing amongst others.
I believe there should now be a rethink. There should be no repeat of these cuts next year. Renfrewshire schools should not be expected to bare an unreasonable burden. Particularly when over £2 million has been put into 'balances' this year and senior officers salaries have risen by over 16% over 2 years.
1) I oppose the imposition on head teachers in Renfrewshire of budget cuts totalling in excess of £2.5m in 2009/10.
2) I believe these budget savings are unfair when over £2 million has been put into 'balances' this year and senior officers salaries have risen by over 16%.
3) I believe Renfrewshire Council should rethink their plans in relation to devolved school budget cuts.
Please tell use how local savings are being made in the comments box - All representations made will go to local decisions makers - YOUR OPINION DOES MATTER!
