How to cooperate with your colleagues in spaniels

Spain will cooperate more closely with its neighbours in the next year or so, with an agreement between Madrid and Barcelona on a plan to increase cooperation in Spanish schools.

The deal comes as Spain grapples with a shortage of teachers in schools across the country.

“We are working with our partners in the education sector to increase our cooperation in schools, to improve the quality of our education and to strengthen our links with the international community,” Education Minister Alejandro Martinez said.

Spain’s education system is ranked seventh out of 20 OECD countries, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
