Classes start today. The changes brought by the new school year are covered by most newspapers today.
The Jurnalul Naţional debates on the topic: the extension of secondary school for students entering the fifth grade, a longer winter vacation, dictation hours even in high school, extracurricular activities - all these for the students.
As for the teachers, they are free of the tenure exam, but might need music skills to sing the national anthem, the Jurnalul reads.
About the changes, the Adevărul notes: the authorities are trying to resuscitate an institution that nobody trusts anymore with an anti-truancy system and new educational programmes.
Newspapers are commemorate the 3000 victims of the 9/11 attacks and the consequences of the tragedy.
"America united for one day", the Adevărul headlines.
The Democrats and the Republicans, otherwise irreconcilable opponents, commemorated the victims side by side.
"The New York sky did not weep either", to the contrary, "the place of tears was taken by the confident look into the future", the Evenimentul Zilei writes, reporting from the Ground Zero.
In the România Liberă you can read: "What is the stake of President’s Băsescu visit in the US": signing the agreement for the anti-missile shield, the strategic partnership, and also the visa liberalization. And, in addition to this, you can learn how the tragedy of the Twin Towers has taken out country out of a gray area, making it eligible for NATO.
And because next week a new Civil Code will go into effect, it is not too late to learn from the Evenimentul Zilei about the changes with respect to engagements, marriages, divorces, lease, wiretaps and the new rules of the journalistic work.
"Romanians modern slaves in the little town of Claudia Schiffer".
In the România Liberă you can read about 18 workers who got to work without legal forms, for free, in Germany. Unpaid and exploited, the people came into conflict with the boss, who was endlessly postponing the payment of their salaries.
And optimist news in the Ziarul Financiar: malls developers have announced the emergence from recession and are opening in our country large projects worth of 500 million euro. Moreover, we can expect a final year boom for shopping centers.
