Greek Education Min: Education Is the Best Mechanism for Social Mobility

ATHENS — The main goal of government interventions in education is a school that is more substantial, more creative, more extroverted and of higher quality, with higher expectations and requirements that meet the need for a more comprehensive education, Education Minister Niki Kerameus said on Tuesday in parliament.

"We aim at a creative management and utilisation of the provided knowledge and continuous self-improvement, in a school of vigilance, of the achievement of the learning objectives, in a better and safer school environment," added Kerameus.

Kerameus, who announced a new legislative initiative for vocational education, said the government is investing in a modern school, providing more and better knowledge, building a more dynamic and inclusive society, with equal opportunities and no exclusion, "because education is the best mechanism for social mobility."


Alexandros Kachrimanis is the Regional Governor of Epirus, one of Greece’s most important and beautiful – but perhaps least known regions.
