Condition to approve budgets
Monastery has emphasized during the last dates that the implantation of the parental veto was a "fundamental" condition in order to support the project of regional budgets of 2020 elaborated by the regional Executive.
Given this, Ossorio said that this condition did not appear in the investiture agreement and stressed that there are hardly any complaints from parents regarding the content of these complementary and extracurricular activities. He explained that this previous information was going to be increased with the dissemination of the data of these activities, so it was up to the parents to choose the center based on that information.
