The government has allocated 97 million to support technical education

The government has allocated equalization subsidies to local budgets for the expenditures for vocational education in the amount of 97 million 994 thousand 600 hryvnias. This is stated on the website of the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine.

As noted, aid will be allocated only to cities whose budgets could not Fund private vocational schools.

So, this grant will support 20 cities in which the share of expenses on financing of vocational educational institutions is more than 20% of the total expenditures of the local budget.

«This is a very necessary step to support vocational education in Ukraine today. I have repeatedly pointed out that small cities simply can not physically afford to Fund local vocational school entirely from its own budgets», — the press service quoted the head of the Ministry of education Lilia Grinevich.

We will remind, earlier the Minister of education stated that he considers it a bad idea to Finance vocational education from the local budget. In her opinion, education should be financed at the expense of subventions from the state budget.

«Absolutely the wrong decision for the management of vocational education. We are trying to fix for the next budget year. This education was transferred to the wrong level of control, was not given support by educational subventions. It will be resized», — said Grinevich.

At the same time, the Minister said that since the beginning of the next academic year vocational schools at the regional level will have the state order, which was financed from the educational subsidy.
