Figures from the Institute Fiscal Studies released this week reveal that to help children's education post Covid, the US is committing £1600 per child, the Netherlands is committing £2500 and Britain is committing just £50 per child. Sadly the Government's education recovery tzar is contemplating resigning as the government turned down his request for £15 bn. First our children are let down over 'A' level and GCSE results, now their future education recovery is minimised. What next?
