|Email item||Print item||
A new agreement has been signed today between the Ministry for Education and the Church Secritariat for schools.
The agreement states that the government is to finance Church schools for the services of various personnel. Since an agreement reached in 1991, the government has already been supporting Church schools with the requirement of following various guidelines and policies. The new guidelines in this agreement will include the stipulation of class sizes and staff/students ratio, among others.
The schools had been allocated €42 million by the state in the budget.
