Here are some recent news stories around the web regarding school funding:-
Children with links to the care system will be given the chance to attend independent and state boarding schools, the Department for Education announced.
The Boarding School Partnerships Information Service will see authorities work with children's charities to identify pupils who can be put forward for bursaries and scholarships.
The announcement builds on wider programmes to support vulnerable children in all schools, including named headteachers who are responsible for supporting their education and almost £2.5 billion funding this year for state schools to support them through the Pupil Premium.

It wants cash and compassion to go hand in hand.
The British Asian Trust is planning to raise $10m (£7.5m) for an "education development impact bond" in which investments are linked to specific targets in improving education for disadvantaged communities in India.
It's a project being supported by the British Asian Trust's founder, Prince Charles.[ Read more... ]
