The report, seen by The Daily Telegraph, exposes how councils in England are spending more than a £1 billion a year to care for fewer than 4,900 children. It calculates that councils now spend an average of £4,000 a week — or £208,000 a year — to place one child in a home, several times what it could cost to educate them at some of Britain’s top public schools.
To be entirely fair Eton only runs 8 months of the year. But it also provides a rather better education than these poor mites are getting.
Also to be entirely fair this sum being spent by the councils won’t actually include their education, that’ll be in the standard schools budget.
What the fuck are they spending all that money on?
Unity, you know?
