Government gives notice to motion on open & transparent discussion with teaching professionals & support staff

The Government has given notice of a motion it intends to move commending itself for the open and transparent process of discussion which it has engaged in with the teaching professionals and support staff.

The Motion by the Minister for Education asks the House to recognise the need to modernise education in Gibraltar after years of under-investment and neglect and the poor state of repair of the schools. It also asks the House to fully support the Government in its plans to provide new school buildings in the shortest time possible, introduce co-education, regularise educational key stage alignment, extend the provision of nursery education, expand vocational opportunities and provide nutritional hot meals in schools.
