THE national government announced that Andalucia will receive a significant part of the €1.4 billion euros set aside for education grants.
Andalucia will also receive an additional €72.2 million for Lomce funding, the 2013 law for the improvement of Spanish education quality, despite recent criticism from the Andalucian education minister Adelaida de La Calle about the ineffectiveness of the law.
De La Calle commented that the law creates an unmanageable 17 different models of education, and asked for an overhaul of the current system.
The Andalucian school system will also receive €24 million for textbooks, an increase of 10.8% from the previous year.
