PARENTS of children with learning support needs are collecting signatures in Nerja to request the Junta de Andalucia regional government provides the Narixa School with a special education teacher or assistant.
The parents are also asking the regional government to hire an additional teacher for the town’s San Miguel School.
“All families should be able to choose freely where they want to enrol their children, but this right is denied to us, since the Narixa School does not have an adequate special needs assistant,” said the parents.
They have handed out signature sheets across different points in the town, so that anyone interested in participating can support their cause.
Education councillor, Gema Garcia, has also shown her support as well as the town councillors, who have all signed the petition.
