EDUCATION Romanian president
Klaus Iohannis on Tuesday promulgated the new Education laws. A former high-school
teacher, Iohannis, has been promoting a programme known as ‘Educated Romania’
launched in 2016 and followed by a series of public debates. Solutions have
been proposed for fighting school violence in the country’s pre-university
education, to support the disadvantaged categories of students, curb school
dropout and promote sports. Concerning university education, president Iohannis
says the new legislative measures are going to bring the Romanian education up
to international standards. The education laws have been promulgated after
years of debates and at the end of a critical period in Romania’s education
system, marked by the recent all-out strike of the teachers. In another
development, upon the appeals session for the National Assessment exam counting
towards the candidates’ high-school accession, 76.4% of the students have
obtained passing results while 73% of the candidates have passed the
baccalaureate exam.
