“Schools asking parents for ‘money via direct debit’ owing to cuts”

“Schools are asking parents for money via direct debit or large one-off payments because of cuts to funding, a mother has said at a rally in central London.

Hundreds of parents, children and teachers took part in the demonstration on Sunday as part of the campaign, Fair Funding for All Schools.

Jo Yurky, co-founder of the campaign, said she was aware of schools that had asked parents if they would be willing to make monthly payments of £20 to £50 or a one-off payment of £250.”
