Schools 'struggle to balance budget'
Schools could soon be facing severe financial hardship which could affect standards because of cuts to their budgets, head teachers warn.
A typical secondary school in Wales will be driven into deficits of more than £1m, the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) said.
The Welsh government has sought to protect school budgets.
It has increased education spending by 1% above the block grant that Wales receives from the UK government.
Last week, Education Minister Huw Lewis told a conference of head teachers that the education budget had seen a cut of 10%.
