Best laid plans…

THE best laid plans of mice and men, to paraphrase the Scottish poet Mr Burns, can oft go awry. But when planning one’s work it is sometimes best to actually have budgets to allow some plans.

A letter from the Department of Education has told local schools to spend as normal, but prudently, for the first three months of the year, as the Assembly has yet to sign off the budget for the incoming year.

So, the Department of Education seems to believe that knowing your budget isn’t that necessary when you’re planning what you are doing.

Schools, meanwhile, disagree.
