At the presentation of the courses offered by this year's Adult School and the Student Association Vega Baja, the Mayor of Orihuela, Monserrate Guillén said, "you can cut money from other areas of the council but never in education. Training in Orihuela is the most important thing."
The Councillor for Education, Rosa Martinez said that although the Ministry of Education has not provided the 7000 Euros necessary to run the course, the popular Spanish for foreigners class at Orihuela Costa will continue.
The mayor went on to express his commitment to address the lack of a proper centre for the Adult School.
This morning I also read that the scores from the selection process for adult education teachers in Bigastro has been revised to take account of errors made in the figures. Ana, who has taught us Spanish for five years, has now moved from fifth to third on the list and Eduardo, who taught us for one year is now placed fifth.
