The country’s education minister, Marcel Chládek, has announced the finding of an additional 200 million crowns in savings at his ministry, following on a similar announcement of 150 million last week. The latest funds, he said had been allocated as a buffer for unspecified future projects. The minister said Monday that he wanted finances saved to be divided among teachers’ salaries, school equipment and sports. Audits underway are expected to find further areas where money at the ministry can be saved or better spent.
