The poorest pupils in England will get an extra £430 spent on them next year under the government's pupil premium scheme, it has been revealed.Sadly, this news will not receive a fraction of the attention that the increase in tuition fees has. and that is as true of the Lib Dem blogosphere as anywhere else.
