In fact, the prime minister received their proposals on the issue of vocational rehabilitation, emphasising that the issue is one of his main priorities.

"It is very important for me to be with you today, not only to congratulate you, all the employees here in the largest special school in Greece, but especially the parents and all those who participate in this very intense experiential process, the great work that you are doing," Mitsotakis noted. "But what interests me most is to understand what more we can do as a state to enhance special education as a whole, by learning lessons from your daily experiences," he said.
