Town halls lash back at Spanish government’s education cuts

A BATTLE is now raging as town halls refuse to accept the level of education cuts being demanded by central government.  

It comes after the PP government proposed reforms to local government law, to exclude both education and health from municipal responsibility.

Rajoy’s government wants to bring all education spending under central control.

It argues local councils should concentrate on other responsibilities, such as town planning, water supply, and social welfare.

Any overlaps in responsibility should be referred to the Constitutional Court, it says.
