FALSE ECONOMY

Recently came across this very relevant website with its overview of cuts to youth services:
http://falseeconomy.org.uk/blog/youth-services-in-crisis

On Coalition economic policies in general see their list of quotes in 'What the experts say..'

Also:  http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2010/nov/08/education-maintenance-allowance-cuts


...A modern society cannot tolerate an education system that closes itself off to poorer students by failing to support them. Students will not accept the government turning the clock back on their ambitions, for if they succeed, the consequences will be devastating...


Are we seeing the some of the consequences today as youths riot on the streets of our major cities?
