Fife Council Planning £100m Cuts: Targetting Education

Fife Council’s Labour-led administration are asking the people of Fife to think about the future of education services in the Kingdom. According to figures produced by Fife Council, currently spending on education services makes up over half of the total Council budget.

Fife Council Leader, Cllr Alex Rowley commented: “Our big challenge over the next four years is to save £100 million from the council’s budget and try and continue to deliver high quality services. That means we have to question where and how we currently spend our money, be prepared to make changes and do things differently. We’ve made a commitment to involve Fifers in this process, share budget information and listen to views and ideas.”
