VALENCIAN CUTS IN EDUCATION. RECORTES EN EDUCACIÓN EN LA COMUNIDAD VALENCIANA

Dear students and visitors

Queridos alumnos y visitantes

It is with great sorrow that I inform you that  THIS BLOG WILL BE TEMPORARILY INACTIVE as a way of protest against the attack Valencian public institutions,  especially Health and Education are under.

Lamento comunicaros que a partir de ahora ESTE BLOG PERMANECERÁ TEMPORALMENTE INACTIVO como medida de protesta contra al ataque a los servicios públicos de la comunidad valenciana, especialmente a la sanidad y la educación.

Valencian Government have announced new cuts in spending on the public sector which seriously affect Education.  It goes beyond dramatically cutting down teacher’s salaries (in my case nearly 20% less). For example, did you know that at our school we cannot pay for the electricity bill nor can we spend any more money on any kind of resources?.

I know we all have to tighten our belts when there is a crisis. But this is a scam. We are mired in various political corruption scandals, the region has been left cash-strapped and with hulking debts.

Who has led us to be the most indebted Spanish region? Will they pay for their negligence?
