    Catholic schools wanting to educate the children of Venezuelan migrants can do so if they so choose.

    Education Minister Anthony Garcia was recently quoted as saying that Venezuelan refugee children would not be guaranteed a place in schools, since the first priority would be local students.

    The matter was raised by reporters during today’s post-cabinet news briefing, leading to this response by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.
