The Ombudsman for Education Charles Caruana Carabez has said that it is illegal for a law to keep children from attending school.

In a short statement, Caruana Carabez said that “a situation has arisen where children are being precluded from receiving education on political and financial grounds. He said that “No law should deprive humanity of education because that spawns untold harm”. He added that any law designed to do so is automatically illegal. He called on the government to remedy the situation without delay.
