State to pay Tallinn EUR 2 mln for costs of private schools ({{commentsTotal}})


The Estonian Supreme Court ruled that the Ministry of Education and Research has to pay the City of Tallinn two million euros to compensate for costs deriving from the implementation of the Private Schools Act.

Estonia's top court ruled that in addition to the 1.4 million euros that the ministry has to pay the city according to a ruling made by the circuit court, it would also have to pay an additional 681,720 euros, the ruling of the court states.

The state has 30 days to pay the sum.

The Supreme Court in October 2013 found it to be unconstitutional of the state to place on municipalities a duty to finance private schools without setting out funds for that purpose in the state budget.
