The Minister of Education, Sorin Cimpeanu, announced important changes in the education system, which will apply from the moment of entry into force of the Education Laws, respectively in September next year.
Among the changes, students who enter the seventh grade in September will be able to take the entrance examination for some high schools before taking the National Assessment. Also for these students, the average obtained in the school years for high school admission will no longer count and they will no longer receive grades in sports and arts, but Admitted / Rejected grades.
Students, parents and teachers will see fundamental changes when the two laws enter into force, says the Minister of Education, Sorin Cimpeanu.
"The system architecture will be completely changed. These laws do not make a beautification of the education system, but are really a reform. The laws will be able to enter into force 30 days after their promulgation and publication in the Official Gazette, followed by a period of eight months for the drafting of the subsequent legislation. The system architecture will have to be prepared, so all the institutions presented will have to be set up, practically, by the end of June, 2023", said Sorin Cimpeanu.
At the same time, the Minister of Education announced changes to the Baccalaureate exam, and from 2030, mandatory education will begin from kindergarten.
Starting tomorrow, the projects are in public debate for 35 days, and those interested will be able to express their opinion on the them.
