17% of Minorities Schools Allotment Goes to Jewish Schools in Roumania

Seventeen percent of the 25,000,000 lei set aside by the Ministry of Education for the minority schools was allotted for the Jewish schools. Twenty-nine per cent will go to the Catholic schools and twenty per cent to the Lutheran.

A section of the press voices the complaint that the sum allotted to Jewish schools is out of proportion to the size of the Jewish population and Jewish participation in the State revenue. The 4,250,000 lei which have been allotted for the Jewish schools are to be distributed in Old Roumania where there are 70 Jewish schools with 345 teachers, in Translyvania where there are 32 Jewish schools with 102 teachers, in Bukowina where there are 14 schools and 17 teachers and in Bessarabia where there are 37 schools and 130 teachers.
