Parents 'Asked To Pay For Text Books By Schools'

Posted at 7:20AM Monday 14 Apr 2014

The Association of Teachers and Lecturers survey of 500 staff members in English, Welsh and Northern Irish schools found 26% of parents were asked for contributions for such items.

According to the survey, in 30% of cases, if parents cannot pay, the school makes up the difference.

But 43% of staff fear such requests put some pupils at a disadvantage.
