Minister of Education speaks on the education budget post-COVID

MOE BUDGET.00_00_27_12.Still001

As noted by the Prime Minister time and time again, Belize is in a financial bind.  Millions are being diverted to assist the unemployed, to buy medical resources and equipment in the COVID-19 fight and they are trying to keep up with the salaries for public officers and teachers.  When asked how the education budget will be impacted post-COVID, Minister Faber minced no words and explained that some promises may have to be broken.

Hon. Patrick Faber, Minister of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture:Every aspect of the government ought to expect some new normal after all of this is over because the revenues that are coming into the government are next to none and so we will really be in a position where what we had expected – in fact we are already feeling that, monies that come in to this ministry on a monthly basis from the Central Government we can’t expect that same kind of income, it is why I have said we have to adjust how we are doing certain things. You heard me speak about the subsidy program which I think I’m saying we’re still committed to but could possibly go all up in the air. We had made a commitment, the Prime Minister himself made the commitment of ensuring that students who are attending government owned secondary schools will not have fees this year, that we have to now reconsider this year because things aren’t what we expected them to be and yes there are going to be issues.”
