Cash For Kids
Total education spending in England was £29bn in 1997 and is £60bn this year.
Spending per pupil, which was £2,500 in 1997, would from now to 2010 rise by a further 10% in real terms to £6,600, Mr Brown said.
This was "continuing to narrow the gap in investment per pupil between state and private schools".
The broad range of school fees at independent schools are as follows:
|Preparatory schools||(5-7)||£2,500 - £4,000|
|(8-13)||£4,000 - £7,500||£8,000 - £12,000|
|Secondary Schools||Girls||£5,000 - £8,000||£13,000 - £16,750|
|(11/13-18)||Boys||£5,000 - £9,000||£13,000 - £16,750|
