Schools will offer pupils fewer subjects and could cut the school day due to a “budget crisis,” school leaders have said.
The warning comes from the leaders of 80 of Northern Ireland’s largest schools. It is part of a joint statement from organisations representing principals, governors and school finance managers.
Many schools are in a “critical situation,” they said, facing budget deficits of as much as £1m. Their caution came on the same day that the 2017-18 education budget was published by the secretary of state.
