  • [01] PASOK leader : Gov't attempts to manipulate education

  • [01] PASOK leader : Gov't attempts to manipulate education

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou, addressing a conference organised by the party's education sector with the participation of professors, teachers and academics on Friday, said that the government "is attempting to manipulate and involve party politics in education".

    Papandreou said that the conception of the New Democracy party for education "strengthens social inequalities and wants good education for the rich and the average and low level education for the socially weak".

    Referring to public and private universities, the PASOK leader said that the main pylon of PASOK's policy is the public university, but also free access, with meritocracy and strict rules, to non-state universities which will be financed by the state.

    Papandreou placed blame on businessmen, saying that it is the responsibility of private capital to invest in education, adding that Greek businessmen have not responded to this request.

    He further said that all the parties are to blame for the clientele conception prevailing in universities.

    Maria Damanaki, who is responsible for the education sector as a member of the Political Council, analysed PASOK's proposals on education, pointing out that the present day Greek university does not meet modern requirements and leaps are needed for the future.
