    Thumbs down 100,000 pupils crammed into overcrowded state schools

    One in five primaries and more than a quarter of secondary schools in England are either full or officially overcrowded, according to the Department for Education.

    Analysts have suggested that rising birth rates and the impact of immigration are putting extra pressure on school places, particularly in large cities. The figures showed that 95,940 pupils had been placed in English state schools deemed as already full this year....

    Sadly, this would not be in the interests of the present Tory Government.

    Best that they keep the next generation even dumber than this one, SW, ya see.

    Yet the situation was already waiting to happen before the Coalition came to power. The children were born, they were always going to need education, 100,000 places haven't disappeared in the last few months.

    Perhaps tax relief on private school fees may be an economical solution to the problem, reducing pressure on the state system by encouraging parents to remove their children to the private educational sector.

    Not much use if the parents income is tiny or non existant, unless it was like a 100% benefit or some such thing.

    I am sure that 100% wouldn't be cost effective. But some form of tax concession economically in the interests of both taxpayer and those parents who are almost able to afford the school fees, and with some tax relief could do, might work don't you think? Certainly remove pressure from the state system.

    More cost effective than building lots of new schools though, no?

    Agreed, plus get a handle on immigration through which some schools have over 20 + languages being spoken. And many of these foreign speaking children have assistants wholely dedicated to them which takes away manpower from indigenous British children.

    No, I wouldn't have thought so, not in terms of amortized capital expenditure plus operating costs.

    I will never vote for the BNP but I do wholeheartedly agree with your view that all lessons on the national curriculum should be taught only in English, unless we are talking about learning another language as a foreign language. It should be entirely the parents responsibility both practically and financially to ensure their children speak, read and write English fluently enough to follow the school curriculum. That said I believe that it should be a condition of entry to our country for all immigrants to be fluent in our language.
