Do you think financial crisis affected schools?

Since the financial crisis happened, I really wondered if it affected schools because it affected people’s businesses, jobs and house bill. So as most of us are children, and we all go to school and some may learn or have learned about the financial crisis and know that it affected other people.

( What I personally think ) Answer:

I think it did affect schools because all schools need the money to buy us pencils, books, rulers and all the stationery we need. So it’s obvious that it did affect schools.

    This post has a star because it's a great new discussion. Can people find evidence of the impact of the crisis on schools?
    HINT You might want to research 'austerity measures' after the crisis.

    I agree that the financial crisis probably effected schools but not just ones here but ones everywhere. You said that schools need to buy stationery, books, pencils and rulers but they would also have to pay to keep the school. You also need to pay for the electric most schools have. Schools are also like people's businesses so if all kinds of businesses were effected then would schools.

    That's what I think though.

    The financial crisis would have effected schools because, since everyone was losing money, the government was too. Most of the schools are state schools which means that they are funded by the government so that we can get a free education. So for the government it would be hard to fund for schools. As well as this some schools have free school meals for KS 1, so the government would find it hard to fund for that too. There are some schools for which you have to pay for(private schools). Parents would find it hard to pay for their child's education if they went to a private school, as they cost a lot and with the financial crisis, they just wouldn't be able to afford it. Schools would have also found it hard to pay for equipment that you might use in school.
