Proposals for changes in the sports education system

Sports championship schools are institutions of the education system that enable the most gifted youth to combine education with intensive training., leading to the development of sports talent.

The current education financing system allows it to be allocated from the state budget (as part of an educational subsidy for local government units) increased funds for the functioning of sports championship schools in the amount resulting from doubling the amount allocated to one student in a given financial year. Additional funds may also be generated by local government units.

In addition to the above-mentioned. subvention Ministry of National Education allocates additional funds (from a special measure) for the implementation of the sports training program for students – players with a certain sports level. Every student – the competitor is annually assessed according to. criteria taking into account his sports level (currently owned sports class, start in the main event, participation in the staff of Polish sports associations) and implementation of start-up and training plans (Annex no 1).

The above factors, except that, that they allow for the analysis of the training course of each player, affect the amount of funding for each sports education institution and also allow you to compare the level of training in each of them.

• international and master class MM and M – 226 students;

• class I – 624 students;
