PvdA Beteugel financiële problemen scholen [NL 2012 CampaingWatch

door Jeroen Dijsselbloem op 3 september 2012

Financiële problemen van scholen vormen een gevaar voor de toekomst van het onderwijs. Daarom presenteert de Partij van de Arbeid een actieplan (pdf) om de deze problemen aan te pakken. Ook de Algemene Onderwijsbond (AOb) luidt de noodkloken doet een beroep op de politiek om in te grijpen. Financiële problemen leiden tot slechter onderwijs. Het is dus zaak om scholen financieel gezond te houden.

De PvdA wil openbaar maken welke scholen onder verscherpt toezicht staan en ervoor zorgen dat ouders op de hoogte zijn van de financiële situatie waarin de school van hun kinderen verkeert. In ons plan maken wij daarnaast extra geld vrij voor actiever financieel toezicht door de Onderwijsinspectie. Scholen in de problemen moeten hulp inroepen om erger te voorkomen.

Een kort parlementair onderzoek moet de feiten rond de financiële positie van scholen snel boven tafel krijgen. Dit onderzoek moet aantonen of de financiering van scholen door de overheid op dit moment voldoende is en of scholen in de toekomst met deze middelen de steeds hoger wordende rekeningen kunnen betalen.

Scholen laten ons weten dat ze geen geld hebben voor de gewoonste zaken zoals schoonmaak, de energierekening en onderhoud van het gebouw, omdat de prijzen flink zijn gestegen. Er wordt steeds vaker in rode cijfers geschreven.

Aan de andere kant zijn er ook scholen die onnodig oppotten. Daar zou een maximum aan gesteld moeten worden. Gaan scholen daar overheen, zonder goede verklaring, dan moet er een korting op de bekostiging volgen. Onderwijsgeld moet immers ten goede komen aan goed onderwijs.

US analyst sees IFA as the world’s leading electronics trade show

Berlin (dapd). According to US blogger and analyst Michael Gartenberg, when IFA opens on Friday the big-name manufacturers and retailers from the US and Asia will also be in Berlin. “IFA gives the US market a good indication of what will soon be on the market here”, said Gartenberg in an interview with dapd. IFA already sets the pace worldwide and lays down the topics for other shows such as CES in January in Las Vegas.

“Nowadays a press release from Berlin is picked up and discussed immediately in the US”, said Gartenberg, commenting on the growing attention that IFA commands. Gartenberg is an IT industry observer for market analysts Gartner. IFA’s importance will continue to grow: “We have not yet reached the point where trade shows such as IFA are becoming less important or irrelevant”, said Gartenberg.

CES, its competitor, is still more important in North America. However, globally speaking “IFA’s influence is big, in the US as well as in South America and Asia”. According to Gartenberg IFA’s success has less to do with its timing, shortly before Christmas trading begins, but more to do with Berlin: the show benefits from the city and its location at the heart of Europe. What is more the exhibition grounds are bigger than in Las Vegas, allowing IFA to display an even wider range of products.

Gartenberg sees no signs of the industry’s major players shunning electronics trade shows. The decision whether to exhibit or not depends on each individual company’s situation. Apple is a special case anyway: “They know that everybody will be talking about them even if they are not exhibiting at IFA “, said Gartenberg.
