Talks between the teachers and the government broke down again yesterday.

The Balearic government announced yesterday that it is going to spend nearly one million euros on drafting in British teachers to help introduce the TIL education programme.

With both the teachers and the Balearic government still locked in talks to try and resolve the dispute over the TIL rilingual language programme the government wants introduced this term, the Ministry for Education was yesterday given the green light to spend 873,600 euros on drafting in an extra 134 auxiliary English language teachers, to add to the 21 already working in the Balearics, and most of them will be from Britain, to help local teachers adapt to the new trilingual, (Catalan, Castillian Spanish and English) curriculum over the course of this term.
