(JIS) – PRESS RELEASE – Education Ministry Providing $226.3 MillionThe Ministry of Education has budgeted just over $226.3 million for fiscal year 2017/ 2018 to six Corporate Area high schools and one in St Thomas in additional financial support outside of their monthly subventions.

The funding covers areas such as tuition, furniture supplies TVET equipment, ICT Support, Apprenticeship Programme, the Career Advancement Programme Support, part time, temporary and no-teaching staff, and PATH Feeding Programme in some of the schools.

Letters have been dispatched to the principals of these schools which were cited in complaints to the Education Ministry about their breaching the Government’s non-mandatory auxiliary fees policy.

According to Education Minister, Senator Ruel Reid, given these figures, there is no basis for claims that only $17,000 is being spent on each child.

In the meantime, the Minister has withdrawn his reference to school administrators cited as being in breach of the policy as evidence of “corruption and extortion”.

“I withdraw the ol Smithreference. I am emphasising however that the schools must comply with the announced policy,” Senator Reid said.
