Should the schools budget be protected?
The government has agreed the schools budget for England with a promise to protect schools from across-the-board cuts, the BBC has learnt. Is it right to protect this area?
Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg revealed plans for a "pupil premium" - extra spending on the most deprived children.
However, other government departments have been asked to make even deeper cuts than previously agreed to help pay for the increased funding.
Has the right decision been made? Do you work in education? Are you a parent? Should other budgets be protected? What would you like to see in the forthcoming Spending Review?
