Minister pledges radical changes to higher education

Minister Todor Tanev has pledged a new Education Act instead of patchy amendments and insertions to the existing one, reports Novinite.

In a recent interview with Bulgarian National Television, he claimed that the main problem of universities was lack of employment. Bulgaria’s Education Minister, as cited by http://dnevnik.bg, insisted that universities were not supposed to be closed by administrative means.

“The question that needs to be asked concerns the quality of training that universities offer and whether they should receive equal subsidies. We need to adopt a college system in the future, which is a superstructure to secondary education,” he stated.
