Schools with empty pockets

Slovakia's schools started the new school year without the promised Sk 756 million (€18 million) in state funding.

However, the Finance Ministry says it will release the money for the education sector by September 15. If not, the schools will have no funds to cover their gas, electricity, heating, and water bills.

Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš proposed that schools that are in the most urgent need would receive the finances sooner, daily SME writes.

Several mayors of towns and villages claim that if they do not see the state funds by the end of the week, they will lock the school gates.
