Education: £1 billion. "No impact."

Does just throwing money at education buy success? Um, no it doesn't. The British have just found that "the government’s £1 billion campaign to raise literacy and numeracy standards in primary schools has failed to have any impact on GCSE results."

There's a lesson there if anyone cares to take it.

Eh, the lesson is that 1 billion pounds is not enough? Sure with more money the gummit can fix things?
