School Transport Cuts

Education Secretary Justine Greening orders a review of council policies around school transport provision for disabled children after 5 live Investigates presents the Department for Education with evidence of widespread cuts. A survey of 2,500 parents by the charity Contact reveals that nearly half of them have had to give up work completely or cut down their hours - just so they can get their kids to school. The Local Government Authority says councils are being forced to make hard choices in the face of 'sustained financial challenges.'.
