Schools in the UK have little money. They have to cut back. The government cut their money. A head teacher cannot pay for cleaners or staff. She cleans the toilets herself. She is embarrassed because her school cannot support students. She has sold school land, cut subjects and fired teachers to keep her school open.

Many UK schools made difficult decisions. They asked millions of parents to volunteer. Some schools asked parents for toilet paper and classroom supplies. Some students get just one sheet of A4 paper a month. Teachers want to meet the education secretary. He said no. The UK government said education is very important.
