The government’s plans for Greek state universities are nothing short of criminal. It took decades for us to mature enough as a society and for Parliament to accept, with an unprecedented majority, the reform bill for tertiary education that is currently in place.
Now, the leftist-led administration wants to undo everything that was achieved with the overhaul and make Greek universities hostage once more to groups within them who are bound to political parties and represent the interests of labor unions.
Moreover, the reason why it is doing this is to pander to a tiny minority of self-proclaimed students and unionists who are close to the ruling party’s hard core.
These plans are not about improving the system but about returning to a dark past. Anyone who cares about the future of the country and its children has a duty to battle these changes.
