A debate on the “Situation of Romanian education” will take place on Monday at the Chamber of Deputies, during the Government’s Question Time, with Education Minister Adrian Curaj invited to attend.
The proposal came from the part of the parliamentary group of the National Liberal Party (PNL).
“Romania is still the country where education has not been handled as a national priority even until this moment, it is the country which hasn’t managed to ensure both free education for all students and equal access to education, which failed to get the education system effectively connected to the labor market, and where a 6 percent allocation of the GDP for national education further remains a challenge,” reads the PNL request referred to the Standing Bureau of the Chamber of Deputies.
PNL requests Education Minister Adrian Curaj to attend the sitting in order to explain the position of the Ministry of Education and Scientific Research on ensuring the legal, financial and human conditions to include the youth in the vocational education system, the situation of the framework plans, the curricula and bidding for textbooks.
The Liberals will also seek explanations regarding the academic degrees assessment procedure.
“We consider that the presence of Minister Adrian Curaj and his Secretaries of State in a debate on education, where they should present us a progress report and the strategies proposed for the education system is an important step in strengthening the fundamental plan for the development of our society – education,” the Liberals state in their request.
