Ombudsman: Education must be priority zero, focus point of society
Education leads to the preservation of the cultural and moral heritage of a society, and the society of our days requests, more than ever, human creative intelligence and capacity, Ombudsman Victor Ciorbea states in a press release sent to Agerpres on Wednesday, due to the celebration of the World Teachers’ Day.
According to him, the World Teachers’ Day highlights the recognition towards the teachers merit in forming generations, culture, social values and honour, at the same time, the school, the education value and its role in the development of each individual.
“Education must be priority zero, the focus point of a society, which leads to the preservation of the cultural and moral heritage, to the development of some new ways of solidarity and a way of living together, which increases the human dignity and the durable peace, giving us a new identity, particularize us and contributes to the formation of a genuine and certain value. Our current society requests, more than ever, human creative intelligence and capacity”, Ciorbea states.
In his opinion, the state institutions must find solutions so all the children have equal chances to learn and be successful in life and teachers be given the necessary support.
