The budget for elementary, secondary and school administration planned for 2017 decreases 169,5 million euros in relation to the funds that the State expects to spend this year, according to data from the Ministry of Finance.
at The request of the parliamentary groups of the PSD and the CDS-PP, the services of the Ministry of Finance sent last Friday to the Assembly of the Republic more information related to the proposal of the State Budget for 2017 (OE2017).
in These new documents, there is a cut of 169,5 million euro for the Basic and Secondary Education and School Administration in relation to the value already estimated for this year.
the office of The minister of Finance now compares the amount of money that has already been spent in 2016 along with the value that should be used until the end of the year (total expenditure consolidated 2016) with the funds, the government plans to use in the next year (planned allocation) and concludes that there is a reduction of 2.7%.
however, in the proposed State Budget for 2017, which was released in the middle of this month, it was made a comparison between the budget planned for 2016 and the budget for the next year, and the frames showed an increase of almost 180 million euros (up 3.1%).
however, between the amount that, in the past year, the Government predicted that they would spend in 2016 (planned budget) and the actually spent there has been an increase 348,9 million euros over the year.
The documents do not offer contradictory information – both attach 6.022,7 million euros for this ministry – but compare different realities.
On the report of the proposed OE2017 delivered about two weeks ago in parliament, said that there was “an increase in expenditure of 3.1% (more 179,4 million) compared to the budget set for 2016″.
While in the documents now delivered in finance, the comparisons between 2016 and 2017 show a variation of less 2,7%.
In both documents highlight the reduction of transfers to the private and cooperative education (least to 12.3%) and the strengthening of pre-school education (over 14.5 per cent).
In total, the executive intends to transfer next year to the private and cooperative education 223 million euros, and for teaching pre-school 529,4 million euros.
