School oil crisis-end in sight.

MORE than 1000 Birmingham school children were still on part - time schooling today - as the oil shortage crisis in Mid land schools got worse.

But there was a glimmer of hope that all the city's 520 schools could be back to normal by Monday - for the first time this term.

At present only children at Washwood Heath - one of the city's biggest eomprehen-sives - are on part-time teaching. Pupils are being sent home at lunch-time with enough work to last them through the afternoon.

A spokesman for the city's education service said: " would expect they would be back to normal by Monday." Elsewhere in the Midlands, i thousands of children face being sent home because of the fuel oil crisis. One school. Woodlands Primary School in Willenhall, has already closed leaving 300 pupils without lessons.
