Schools have to stay open

Organized sit-ins at state schools and universities have absolutely no meaning and should quite simply be brought to an end.

Greek taxpayers have already paid a hefty price for both the construction of the buildings housing these educational establishments and their contents, including computers and other teaching equipment, all of which are currently at risk of being destroyed as a result of vandalism.

When it comes to their children?s studies, Greek families are known for giving their all.

This why they will not tolerate universities with closed doors, the kind of organized action which is aimed at either satisfying the revolutionary instincts of a number of different groups or keeping the vested interests of university unionists intact.

Keeping the doors open at schools and universities is a shared national objective for which everyone has to fight. It is to its credit that New Democracy, the country?s main opposition party, is contributing to this cause.
