'Chicken hut' classrooms criticised in East Riding schools report
A major review has revealed children across the East Riding are being taught in classrooms resembling "chicken huts".
Councillors insist £445 million must be found to improve shocking buildings, which could include selling off any surplus school land to reinvest in desperately needed renovation.
Surveys have revealed £310 million needs to be spent on secondaries, £100 million on primaries and £35 million on special schools.
Secondary schools, including Hornsea, are in "very poor condition", with only three or four out of 18 in reasonably good condition.

Special schools are "very deficient", while there is "some way to go in bringing all primaries up to a satisfactory standard".
Academies, which are outside of council control, are not included in the in-depth review, which was launched last September.
East Riding councillor Kerri Harold, who will chair a meeting next week to discuss the review findings, said councillors were shocked by the state of many of the school buildings.
