Following the catastrophic situation at all levels in the country, new defeats occur in education as well. Measures are being proposed everywhere to ease restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis, but students are still attending online classes, taking online tutoring and taking online exams, VMRO-DPMNE spokesperson Marija Miteva said on Sunday.
Miteva pointed to the worrying situation in which some students will complete three years of study years, which means that they will gain a degree without a single day of in-person teaching, without developing a relationship between a professor, assistant or colleague.
“There are also exceptions, i.e. there is no unification of teaching because several high schools continued with online teaching, although all others work in-person. The Minister of Education is obliged to answer what is the reason why there are such exceptions,” said the representative of VMRO-DPMNE.
Mitevaadded that the ministry should answer whether they are monitoring the illegal actions of the State Examination Center and why they are silent when the exams for appointment of senior staff in education have not been organized for several months.
“Does this attitude prove again that for this government, politics is deeply rooted in education,” Miteva asked.
