Budgets 2022: The piggy bank increases by 2.6% and there are more scholarships and seats for children

For the first time in history, the departure destined to education exceeds the psychological barrier of the 5,000 million euros. There will be 5,023 million euros in total in the educational piggy bank, 2.6% more than the previous year, when 4,893 million was placed on table.

The figure is small if compared to 2021, when the bulk of the EU recovery and resilience mechanism caused an increase of 70%. These endowments will be less than 2022 (it is passed from 1.803 to 1,604 million) but it must be assessed that the ministry has also made an important effort: excluding European funds, educational policy will have up to 3,419 million euros, 10.6% More than past year and 18% more than in 2020. In this departure, the rise was 7.5% last year and it was an increase of 6% the previous one.

The new Minister Pilar Alegría has been released with the eighth educational law of recently approved democracy and an educational crisis for the VOC-19 that has forced the school to redesign and focus on those who need it most. That is why she has focused all the efforts of her in strengthening the scholarships. Again this year, historical records are batted in a game that takes 43.8% of all the purse. For scholarships and aid reserve 2,199 million, which represent 109 million more than in 2021, which there was also a maximum expense.

2,084 million are for scholarships and aid for general study (those granted because the student does not have sufficient resources at home) and here is an increase of 100 million, 5% more than in the previous year. In addition, the Erasmus + program increases its endowment by 10 million euros this year.

The rest of the money is distributed by putting more funds for FP (joy has also assumed training for the employment of the Ministry of Labor); Scanning the classrooms and increasing the public ownership squares of early childhood education, especially for students of one and two years (133 million more than a total of 334 million, when 201 million was allocated.

Joy has taken into account a little more this year the importance of the PROA program, which consists of teaching students lagging out in small groups, and has placed 120 million euros, when the previous year were only 78, although their promoters say that They would take 500 million to do things well.

The Ministry of Universities, for its part, will manage 284 million, 25 million more (9.7%). It is very little budget because Manuel Castells is responsible for putting money for the National University of Distance Education and the International University Menéndez Pelayo, and, with 139 million, finance the Spanish service for the Internationalization of Education and the National Evaluation Agency of quality and accreditation (Aneca).
