Gennimata Characterises New Education Bill “a Patchwork”

ATHENS — Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata, while addressing parliament on Wednesday during the debate on the government's education bill, said that it was a 'patchwork', not a reform, and that "a huge opportunity is lost".

She clarified that her party will not vote for the bill, underlining that this is an action of responsibility, ideological identity and consistency toward the pupils, the teachers and Greek society. "Inequality is growing and you, instead of focusing on eradicating it – which is every child's opportunity to follow its dream – instead want another generation of citizens that will depend on their parents' financial means. The world is changing but you are not," Gennimata said.

"In order to exit the crisis we must invest in knowledge and in the new generation, but you are not doing any of these things. On the contrary, inequality is more firmly established and becomes greater with your policy. You are condemning the next generation to a constant brain drain".
