AN ANSWER FOR GIANNAKOU
This proposal outlines how the educational system could be improved according to all Greek students.It is based on what students demand from the ministry of education in order to heir sit ins and their protest.
According to what the majority of the students think, our educational system is not organised enough.In a huge number of schools there are teachers who are not educated well enough or books that are well - written.Some children have lessons in buildings that are falling down and in some other schools there is no equipment at all. Also all children have to pay for extra lessons to go through the given syllabus that is set by the ministry in order to succeed in the final exams and go to a university.This of course creates a problem for the poor students who, as a result of the current situation and the high exam grades needed, cannot get into any university.
What I should suggest you to do is first of all to increase the funding for the educational system so that it will be 5% of GPN.With this money you could build more schools and every school can be properly equipped .This money could also be used in increasing teachers numbers in schools.
Education isn’t something that can be sold.So I suggest you should also abandon your plan to make private universities legal by changing our constitution.Families pay lots of money already in extra lessons. Also private higher education’s existance would undermind the public universities.
I would suggest that you don’t turn senior high schools into EPAL or EPAS because the only thing it would do,would be to make the situation worse.That is because no student at that age (15 years old) could decide what job they would prefer to do in the future.You should not separate schools in high and low level either.As a result this would separate the students into the “clever” ones and those who are “unable to do something”.
As for the Music Schools I should recommend you to hire music teachers because there is a huge shortage and also arrange some exams so that Music school students can get a qualification when graduating from this special school.
There should be no delay in making changes in our educational system so that it becomes better.This will satisfy students,who will end their sit ins.
