Liquidity position Protestant Schools dire
WILLEMSTAD - The Association of Protestant Christian Education, the VPCO, needs the parental contribution to be able to financially survive in the coming months. This was announced in an urgent letter to parents of the students.
According to a court ruling, the VPCO is not allowed to ask for compulsory contribution because this is in conflict with the free education bill. The VPCO has made a request to the government to supplement the funding shortfall, but they have not received any response to their request.
The liquidity position of the education association begins now, in their own words, to be acute. If the tuition fee, which was increased to 700 guilders, cannot be paid then the quality of education is in danger warns the school.
According to the VPCO the government subsidy is not sufficient to provide education at the desired level.
