The Northern Ireland Affairs Committee at Westminster is undertaking an inquiry into education funding in NI and, with the deadline for public contributions approaching, the IEF is urging everyone with an interest in education reform to make a submission.
The committee of MPs wants to examine whether the levels of funding allocated to education in the Northern Ireland budget are sufficient to meet the challenges facing the sector, and what the spending priorities should be for the monies allocated to the NI Department of Education.
Written submissions are invited to be made online here and the deadline is 1700 on Friday 14 September 2018.
Full details of the inquiry can be found here.
In case is it helpful to you in drawing up a response, an outline of the IEF submission and some facts and figures relating to the issue of education budgeting can be found here.
