Europa/Grecia/Octubre de 2016/Fuente: Tornos News

RESUMEN: El Ministerio de Educación está preparando una reforma integral de la educación, donde el diploma nacional será la clave para entrar en la Universidad, así como la restauración del ‘banco sujeto’ en los exámenes de la escuela en todo el país. La reforma se basa en las conclusiones de un comité encabezado por el profesor Antonis Liakos. En el nuevo sistema que se está preparando, los estudiantes entrarán  a las universidades en función de su “título nacional” y “certificado de estudios” de la escuela secundaria. El plan de estudios de la escuela secundaria tendrá seis cursos obligatorios, dos y cuatro opcionales a elegir entre cuatro campos.

The Ministry of Education is preparing a comprehensive education reform, which will see the national diploma being the key towards entering a university, as well as the restoration of the ‘subject bank’ in the nationwide school exams. The reform will be based on the findings of a committee headed by Professor Antonis Liakos.

In the new system being prepared, students will enter universities based on their “national diploma” and “study certificate” from high school. The high school curriculum will have six compulsory courses, two optional and four to be selected from four fields.

Among the compulsory courses being proposed are Greek language and literature, as well as English as a foreign language and physical education. The fields of the other four compulsory courses are math and IT, science, humanities and social sciences, as well as art and culture.

Additionally, the new system will reinstate the controversial ‘subject bank’ of exam subjects that are used in the nationwide tests. The implementation of the bank was controversial, after being introduced by former Education Minister Konstantinos Arvanitopoulos, as it required teachers to cover the entire syllabus in class, which was problematic. The government believes that the reinstatement will reduce the need for private tutoring.
