LA “black hole” in funding is unfair to LAs with few academies

Janet Downs's picture
The Local Government Association  warns that cutting funding to all local authorities, irrespective of the number of academies in the area, could lead to a rise in council tax and/or local services being cut. Leicester City Council, for example, with no converter academies, is facing a cut of £900,000.

Local authorities with few academies are being penalised. They are being top-sliced in excess of the cost reductions resulting from schools opting-out. This is neither fair nor equitable.
