Superheroes called in to save schools

Hundreds of parents and children demonstrated outside schools in Sussex - to show support for teachers and staff who say that, because of education budgets, they're cut to the bone.

The campaigners say there's an education funding crisis - and that children are suffering. Pupils dressed up as superheroes, to highlight that schools needed saving ... before it's too late.

The government, though, says - it IS making school funding fairer AND investing another £1.3 billion.
