Public spending on education "falling fastest since 1950s"

. . . from the Institute of Fiscal Studies. The BBC reports:

"[. . .] The independent financial researchers say spending will fall by 13% in real terms between 2010-11 and 2014-15. In England, the deepest cuts are in school buildings, higher education, 16-to-19 provision and early years. A Department for Education spokesman said: "The government had to take tough decisions to reduce the deficit." [. . .]"
