THE Ifac secondary school’s Parents Association(AMPA) is organising a petition to widen the Calpe centre’s syllabus. The economic situation of many local families meant that many pupils are unable to travel outside the town for education cycles not available at the local Instituto, the petition pointed out. It also drew attention to “galloping unemployment” amongst the under-25s. Calpe’s bad communications meant that problems still existed for pupils whose families could meet travel expenses, parents added.“It is necessary to cross the N-332 to reach the railway station and the timetable connections are equally bad for trains and buses,” their petition said.The situation was further complicated by thelimited number of places available for some education cycles in neighbouring secondary schools, owing to huge demand from their own pupils.“Our young people cannot study,” the AMPA concluded.
