§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is the average cost, including appropriate allowances for overheads, teacher training, and other expenses, of educating one child to school leaving age.
§ The Earl of Swinton
The estimated cost, at 1982–83 prices, is about £11,000 per pupil in the United Kingdom. This figure includes an arbitary apportionment for the cost of training teachers. It assumes that the child was first admitted to school at the age of rive years.
