Rising spending on special education blamed for education authority's overspending

A Northern Ireland local education authority’s accounts have been qualified
for overspending by £6.5m despite under-spending on its schools budget by £1m.

Ulster comptroller and auditor general John Dowdall said the South Eastern
Education and Library Board was barred by regulations from exceeding its
approved resource allocation plan totalling £265m.

It blamed the overspend on rising spending on special education outside of
its control because funding is not demand led.
