Better value?

You’ll be familiar with the ‘free school’ that opened recently, cost £18 million but only attracted 17 pupils. A report from the Liverpool Echo details a similar level of funding for the rebuild of a large voluntary-aided school in Liverpool (it’s a sports college but as far as I can establish, it’s not an academy), but that funding came not from the government but the local authority. Silly question, but which would voters think was better value for their hard-earned taxes? So, a stark piece of evidence of the Coalition’s priorities.
