Rec­tors voice dis­agree­ment with pro­posed changes

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Uni­ver­sity rec­tors, who held an emer­gency meet­ing yes­ter­day, voiced dis­ap­proval of the gov­ern­ment’s pro­posed changes to ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion. The rec­tors are against the pro­vi­sions re­gard­ing im­mu­nity within uni­ver­sity grounds, post­grad­u­ate stud­ies, the scrap­ping of dif­fer­ences be­tween uni­ver­si­ties and tech­ni­cal col­leges, and the elec­tion of pro­fes­sors via se­cret bal­lots. The coun­cil of rec­tors said it is will­ing to hold an “earnest di­a­logue” with Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Kostas Gavroglou so the draft bill can be re-ex­am­ined and ul­ti­mately “cor­re­spond to the con­tem­po­rary needs of higher ed­u­ca­tion.”
