Academia and civil society against liquidation of teachers training

Civil society and academia representatives are against liquidation of training programs through which secondary school teachers are prepared for. The reaction follows the inclusion in the agenda of the Government draft decision aimed at liquidation of all specialties from the Pedagogical University "Ion Creanga" and the State University of Tiraspol in Chisinau, State University of Balti, Comrat State University, State University of Cahul and one in Taraclia who train teachers for secondary schools and colleges.

"It is incorrect from the Ministry of Education to publish on its official page a version if the classification of professions for the general public and for the Government to prepare a new version of the document. Already 1,300 people have signed the petition for termination of questionable educational experiments, initiated by the Ministry of Education", explained Veaceslav Ionita, Associate Professor, IDIS “Viitorul” expert.

Alexandra Barbaneagră, Associate professor believes that "the new nomenclature comes with flagrant violations of the UNESCO international documents, national and Education Code".

"The position of the Ministry of Education shows a lack of dialogue between central government, academia and the civil society. If the government will follow this initiative, which is at odds with the position of the Rector's Council, with the position of civil society and academia, then this political decision will create a gap and lack of communication between the central authorities, the civil society and academia”, believes Liubomir Chiriac, University professor and Vice-director of IDIS “Viitorul”

Civil society and academia representatives demanded from decision makers, including the Prime Minister Pavel Filip to take a constructive position to support the priority area - Educational Sciences.
