Ap­plaud­ing bad be­hav­ior

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There is a sig­nif­i­cant sec­tion of the rul­ing SYRIZA party that con­tin­ues to be­lieve that ev­ery­thing should be al­lowed in the coun­try’s schools and uni­ver­si­ties. This is a twisted phi­los­o­phy and a fix­a­tion that be­longs in a part of the past when per­sonal free­doms were in­deed at stake. If the re­cent pro­posal put for­ward by the 28 SYRIZA law­mak­ers, to abol­ish the cat­e­gory on re­port cards whereby stu­dents are graded for their gen­eral con­duct, is even­tu­ally passed, this will be seen as a loud and clear sig­nal that bad be­hav­ior will be tol­er­ated and go un­pun­ished. Of course this is the same mes­sage that the left­ists have al­ready sent to the public ad­min­is­tra­tion and so many other sec­tors of so­ci­ety in Greece, re­sult­ing in sig­nif­i­cant dam­age that will take years of sys­tem­atic ef­fort to rem­edy and make the coun­try a place gov­erned by rules again, where there are lim­its.
