THE REGION’S headteachers have hit out at the government prioritising the repair of potholes over the education of Portsmouth’s children.

The recent budget said that while schools are to receive a one-off payment of £400m the repair of the country’s pothole problem has been allocated £20m more.

Hampshire headteacher and regional co-ordinator of the Worth Less Campaign, Tony Markham, said: ‘Despite 2,000 headteachers marching on Parliament to express their concerns over eight years of funding cuts this government has indicated solving the issue of potholes has a higher priority than the education of our children.’
