No mechanism yet to distribute Education Grant

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 7.12.48 PMThe 2014 Budget has allocated $10, 000 for each child attending public school, but the Minister of Education Priya Manickchand is unable to say when her Ministry will distribute the money.

In answer to questions posed by Opposition Parliamentarian Amna Ally, Minister Manickchand said that the grant will be distributed either at the start of the new school year in September or just after.

That answer did not satisfy Ms Ally, who suggested that the mechanism to distribute the Education Grant should have been decided on before the government asked for Parliamentary approval.

In the end, the Minister of Education did not give a definitive date of when the mechanism for the distribution of the education grant would be finalized.
