Stqarrija: Il-Ministeru tal-Edukazzjoni jitlef il-mandat kontra l-MUT u l-edukaturi

F’digriet maħruġ mill-qorti aktar kmieni llum, il-qorti ċaħdet il-mandat ta’ inibizzjoni li pprova jagħmel il-Ministeru tal-Edukazzjoni kontra l-MUT u l-edukaturi.

Reazzjoni inizjali tal-MUT: baġit li jirrifletti n-nuqqas ta’ konsultazzjoni fil-qasam edukattiv

Wara li l-MUT u l-edukaturi ma kinux involuti fil-proċess ta’ konsultazzjoni tal-baġit, illum qed naraw ir-riżultat ta’ dan in-nuqqas.
