Minister of Education, Dr. Tim Gopeesingh, says education is likely to get the largest chunk of the 2013/ 2014 budget again.

He made the disclosure on Friday during a graduation ceremony of School Safety Officers.

Dr.  Gopeesingh said the allocation would include his ministry, along with that of the Ministry of Tertiary Education.

He said the Prime Minister has kept her promise that she will give the biggest share of the annual expenditure to education (close to 20 percent of annual expenditure), which has been done for the last three years, and which he’s confident will continue for the next two years.
