The gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry, Yiannis Pan­tis, died in Athens yes­ter­day at the age of 60. He had been in an in­ten­sive care unit since he suf­fered a heart at­tack on May 18. A pro­fes­sor of ecol­ogy at Thes­sa­loniki’s Aris­to­tle Univer­sity, Pan­tis as­sumed his post in Septem­ber 2015 un­der then Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Nikos Filis. Filis’s suc­ces­sor Costas Gavroglou spoke of a “dif­fi­cult loss,” while Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras de­scribed Pan­tis as “an aca­demic, a teacher, a fighter, who al­ways strove to marry logic with sen­si­tiv­ity,” adding, “Noth­ing is lost from what he taught through his work, his life, his ethos and his strug­gles.”
