A funding rise for schools in Northern Ireland will be almost entirely spent on increased teacher pension costs.
The Department of Education has increased the money schools get per pupil by more than 5% in 2019-20.
However, schools have had to pay a 7.4% increase in employer pension contributions since 1 April.
The amount of funding per pupil for 2019-20 has just been published by the department.
