European Commissioner Navracsics Participates in Education Forum in Sofia

More and more countries in the EU, including Bulgaria, are realizing that education is a national priority, not one of the national priorities, Deputy Prime Minister and Education and Science Minister Meglena Kuneva said. She was speaking at Monday's regional conference "Promoting investment in education through the instruments and funds of the European Union: Opportunities for Bulgaria and Romania" organized by the European Commission. European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics also participated in the forum.
This is the fourth working meeting to promote investment in education and Sofia was chosen because Bulgaria is in the process of implementing an educational reform, Navracsics said. Bulgaria has a very active educational sector, teachers and politicians committed to making the Bulgarian school competitive. Bulgaria is an active participant in the Juncker Plan, investing 1 million euro in the European Commission's Investment Plan for Europe, the Commissioner said. Navracsics encourages the idea for investment in education because Europe is lagging behind in terms of public expenditure in this sector.
Digital skills are among the most important ones and not only students but their teachers too should have them, the Commissioner said. That is why good and flexible forms of teacher training should be sought.
