“Taxpayers still footing the bill for non-existent ‘ghost’ schools locked into £100m ‘PFI swindle’ “

Imagine how this money could benefit current pupils – and we are powerless to stop these payments:

“Taxpayers will foot a bill of over £100 million over the next two decades for “ghost” schools, as local authorities are held to ransom over outstanding Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts.

The Sunday Telegraph has identified schools across the country, built under the Government’s PFI scheme, which closed down just a few years after opening due to declining pupil numbers, poor performance or structural flaws.

But local authorities must continue to pay until the end of the contract – amounting to millions of pounds for empty or demolished buildings.”
