Remedial maths

It seems, to adapt a phrase, that the Education Department has been "highly selective" about releasing statistics:

Education officials admitted the tally of school playing field sell-offs has increased again - just hours after being forced into an embarrassing apology for issuing misleading figures.
Last night the Government said it had approved a total of 31 school pitches, 10 more than the Department for Education previously admitted to signing off and one more than the figures that sparked yesterday's statement of apology.

What's the matter?  Can't they count?
