There are associates of the wider prime minister's staff who look ahead and warn, attention to the changes in Education and especially in the Universities, because they are throwing governments. The government is open double front Promoting arrangements in both schools and universities…….
The government hopes that things will be under control, in relation to the pandemic, in schools, in order not to provoke reactions for the protection measures to students and teachers.
Alongside, Nevertheless, anxious and how the changes in education will proceed, where the government has opened a double front by promoting regulations in both schools and universities.
A new way of admission to universities
What if in schools the government thinks it can handle the situation, with the changes in the national ones brought by the new way of admission to universities, δεν ισχύει το ίδιο και για τα πανεπιστήμια. in any case, Recall that hardly government passed smoothly differences in admission to universities.
Do not forget, not, that what the Ministry of Education wants to go through finds reactions in the educational community and the "fear" of the government for student squatting, the next months, holds well.
The promoted changes:
- Ελάχιστη βάση εισαγωγής στην Ανώτατη Εκπαίδευση όχι με απόλυτο αριθμό αλλά με ορισμό από το κάθε τμήμα. The admission base for each department will be derived from a percentage of the average performance of the candidates of each scientific field in the courses examined.
- Limiting the number of computer options με συμπλήρωση σε δύο φάσεις. In the first phase the candidates will complete a certain number of sections, which will result from 10% of all the departments for GEL and 20% for EPAL. The second phase will be attended by those who have not been admitted to the first phase without restriction, but for the positions of the universities that will remain.
With co-presenter Chrysochoidis
The big "thorn", in any case, is the establishment of the university police inside the universities. There are already obvious reactions here, with student mobilizations and disagreements by academics, as well as objections from the rectors.
Is not, da, and so easy to present as a positive image the announcement of a bill in universities by Mr. Michalis Chrysochoidis. The co-presentation of the university police by the Minister of Civil Protection and the Minister of Education, win Kerameus, did no good, appreciate even within government.
Η κυβέρνηση ονομάζει την πανεπιστημιακή αστυνομία «Ομάδα Προστασίας Πανεπιστημιακού Ιδρύματος» (ΟΠΠΙ). Despite the name, these groups will have special training from the Hellenic Police. They will have special uniforms and will belong to the Hellenic Police.
The responsibilities and objectives of the establishment of the "University Foundation Protection Team", as presented:
Αντιδράσεις από την αντιπολίτευση – Κινητοποιήσεις από φοιτητές
The treatment of the university police is negative by almost the entire opposition. If one excludes Velopoulos's party, the other parties, SYRIZA, KKE, Day 25, is against. The KINAL, also, does not state willing to support unconditionally, since it considers that the responsibility of guarding the space belongs to the universities.
The above data may not be a problem for the government, at the level of a parliamentary majority, but the same is not true of correlations within universities.
The escalation of reactions, which have already started even though the institutions are closed due to a pandemic, are sure and the government is looking for ways to handle it communicatively but it is difficult.
What they remind, not, some in the prime minister are, first (we mentioned it at the beginning), that there were many governments that were in danger of changes in Education.
Secondly, and perhaps more symbolic, is the fact that Konstantinos Mitsotakis, father of Kyriakos Mitsotakis, faced huge problems from the squatting, when he was prime minister. They shook his government.
The times may not be the same and the government may not be afraid of the tragic developments of the time, but they certainly do not stop making parallels.
