We complain sometimes about the lack of education and funding.…….

there should be more money these days.

After some media outlets received notification, the newspaper was able to make note of the fact that the ministries of Education and the National Health Service (SeNaSa) each had about 1,000 no-show employees on the books. As of November 194 agencies, ministries, institutes, and other administrative parts of the administration were paid in checks. As an example, the Ministry of Education returned some 1,200 checks to the National Treasury, and they totaled over RD$23 million (23 x 12 = RD$276,000,000 per year). It is obvious that the government cannot return to paper checks since payment is now 99% via direct deposit.

Yes. Jamao has about 10 teachers who are employed in the schools here, but now live and work in the US. Wonder if they got their check? I am told that no one complained about the absent teachers being paid because some are loyal members of the political party in control.

You must be joking. I'm sure they have much better things to spend all of this extra money on than educating their children. Shouldn't it be spent on marketing to attract more touri$t?
