A total of 329 directors of centers have gone to the meetings|encounters, 215 of Primària and 114 of Secundària.
The meetings|encounters have been summoned from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Universities to give information to the assistants about which it|he|she is the current situation of the public educational centers of the Balearic Islands. Some of the subjects that have been treated are:
Economic|Economical situation of the centers
Bosch has wanted to clarify which to the responsibles for the management|formality of the centers, in first place, the economic|economical situation of the Autonomic Administration is and as|how has effects on the educational system. Bosch has affirmed that "the Government has a debt of 4.480 million euros, besides 1.000 million euros of short-term debt in not "manured|paid" bills". Moreover, he|she|it has suggested|said, the Government has approved the budgets of 2012, after working a whole|real year without budgets, and now we have a limitation of indebtedness, of funding and of capacity of the expense and, the most important, "the new Government is absolutely responsible for the new budgets". As a matter of fact, he|she|it has suggested|said, "all centers have charged|collected the expenses of functioning|operation corresponding to the month of January and on the next 29 of February will charge|collect those of the second month of the year". "The rest|subtraction of the debt with the centers will be being paid as people can", has explained Bosch.
Update contributions for school activities
The counselor has proposed the adjustment of the contributions of the pupils for school activities, these amounts are then not revised since year 2002. The update of these contributions to adapt them to the increase of the IPC would mean an increase of 1 euro in the month for student (9 euros per year), a reasonable figure that will mean an oxygen cylinder for the centers.
Choice of first language|tongue
The counselor has explained that the Ministry is writing up at present the order of education that allows the choice of the first language|tongue and that will not be anything more than the development of the valid order of September of 2004. This order has never been respected and what it|he|she makes is to pick up the articles|items 18 and 22 of the Law of Linguistic Normalization, which bring the right of the parents and mothers to choose the language|tongue of first education of its|his|her|their children|sons to light, like this as the pupils will never be segregated in different centers by questions of language|tongue.
Protests, closings and mobilizations
Rafael Bosch has wanted to be very convincing with the treatment of the subject of the protests, closings and organized mobilizations for this week and has shown its|his|her|their absolute rejection to making a political use of the centers. He has affirmed that it seems to him|her "that an educational center of compulsory education is occupied and that we do not have to forget that in these centers there are pupils who are minors" reprovable|retestable.
