German govt to distribute first round of money to schools from digital pact in 2019

Wednesday 16 January 2019 | 10:35 CET | News
The fund for the digital pact amounts to a total of EUR 5 billion, to finance tablets, laptops and Wi-Fi in schools. At the end of last year, the federal states stopped the constitutional amendment for the digital pact brought by the federal government. A negotiating committee is scheduled to begin talks on a resolution at the end of January, the report added. The cash can still be distributed, in light of a clear plan for educational concepts and digital teaching in schools, said Karliczek.
