Ugulava to take money from children2010-12-10 19:49
Georgian kindergartens will be paid for since next year. The decision was already confirmed to oppositional deputy Tinatin Khidasheli at the Mayor's office. Authorities have never brought the country to such shame even in the hungry 90s. Perhaps, the decision is attributed to money saving. Tbilisi's budget in 2011 will be reduced by 123 million laris. In this connection, public travel fares and water rate have been increased. Now, the thrifty Mayor Gigi Ugulava is going to take the missing laris from children.
A year and a half ago, there started a baby boom in Georgia. They say it's because Patriarch Ilia II started christening newborn babies. However, God's care seems to be insufficient for bringing up a child. Considering the official 16,8% unemployment, the parents' means are also rather scanty, and the Georgian state started saving money on children.
President Mikheil Saakashvili spared no money on English teachers and laptops for the first-graders at the beginning of the school-year, showing off against the background of happy children. As for Tbilisi Mayor's office re-elected this May, it managed to find an object for pulling in belts. Gigi Ugulava personally promoted by the president has reduced the city preschools budget by 12 million laris.
It has been found out that the money missed by Tbilisi kindergartens will be compensated by parents. This was reported to GeorgiaTimes by Republican party deputy of Tbilisi Sakrebulo Tinatin Khidasheli.
- As a mother of a boy who goes to a play school, I was told that since January 1, play schools will become paid. I tried to clear up the matter at Tbilisi City Council and the Mayor's office. They did not confirm that the fee will be introduced since January 1 but they all said that play schools will become paid within 2011.
- How much will the cost be and will kindergartens be affordable for the citizens of Tbilisi?
