Funding problems could see some Lincolnshire schools close

The government has announced a new funding deal - but the county council aren't happy.

Some Lincolnshire schools could be forced to close if they don't get a fairer cut of Government funding.

That's the warning from the County Council who've slammed the way re calculations have been made for the funds for 2019.

The Government say the restructure will make things fairer and reduce social inequality.

But the Council argue the figures are based on old data - and as Lincolnshire has always been underfunded we aren't seeing a big enough rise to bring the County in line with other areas.
