Education Minister: Pre-school Education Will Become Compulsory for 4-Year Olds from 2020

Education Minister: Pre-school Education Will Become Compulsory for 4-Year Olds from 2020

16.12.2019
Sofia, December 16 (BTA) - Pre-school education will become compulsory for four-year old children from the 2020/2021 school year, Education Minister Krasimir Valchev told a news briefing at the Council of Ministers on Monday. He spoke after a meeting of the unit which oversees a mechanism for prevention of school dropout. Minister Valchev said that this is stipulated in the State Budget Act which obliges the ministry to draft amendments to the Pre-school and School Education Act. The Education Minister said that in three years 49,000 additional pupils and students were enrolled in school but of these a little over 6,000 became secondary dropouts. Labour Minister Denitsa Sacheva said that one of the biggest problems is a months-long campaign which aims to demonize those who work in the public administration. Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Donchev said that Monday's meeting had identified a need for secondary mobilization within the ongoing campaign and more efforts on field. Donchev said that the mechanism is working successfully. NV/PP Source: Sofia, http://www.bta.bg/en/c/DF/id/2122499
