Nearly 3 million school and pre-school children start a new school year in over 17,800 educational units

Almost 3 million pupils and preschoolers start classes for the new school year 2022-2023 on Monday in over 17,800 educational units.

The structure of the new year will comprise 5 modules, separated by 5 mini-holidays. A number of changes will be operated starting this year. Mid-term exams will no longer be compulsory, while the average grade for the secondary cycle of education in Romania, (grades 5-8) will be discarded as a criterion for enrolling in high-schools. At the end of the school year, pupils can no longer be expelled, and parents are no longer allowed to raise money for presenting teaching staff with gifts. Referring to some of the unsolved issues ahead of the new school year, Education Minister Sorin Cîmpeanu recognized that many schools lack fire safety permits.

Parents have access to the educational units during the beginning of the new school year festivities, the Minister of Education, Cimpeanu, said on Friday.

“The information according to which the Ministry of Education issued a restrictive decision is false! The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health do not in any way discourage the presence of families at the opening of the school year, especially since the vast majority of events of this type are organized in open spaces. We thank the Ministry of Health for the cooperation in the interest of the Romanian school, of every student and every teacher! (…) I am convinced that all the principals of educational units understand the importance of openness to the community and the involvement of the family in the education of children and young people, from the first school day,” the minister said on his Facebook page.
