The article on budget cuts that are pushing local schools to the brink, made grim reading.

It is all the more galling in Lewes, where we see the sites of schools like the Pells & St Annes sinking into dereliction years after the schools have closed.

As a head teacher recently observed, our country’s future is not about whether we stay in or drop out of the EU.

Our country’s future is sitting in our classrooms – and currently their prospects are not good.
