AB- The article discusses the investigation that found the failure of councils in 2015 to spend up to a third of pupil premium funding intended to improve educational outcomes of looked-after children, and unspent amount is equal to pupil premium funding for almost 1,500 looked-after children. Topics discussed include need for full utilisation of pupil premium to address educational advantages faced by looked-after and adopted children, virtual school heads, and budgeting challenges. INSET: What’s a virtual school head?.

Next, I received the alert for cyber school, and there were no relevant items in that one.
Finally, I did not receive the alert for K-12 online learning this week.
So nothing to report this week.
