Minister says comprehensive curricular reform too important to be personalised

The comprehensive curricular reform continues and it is back under the jurisdiction of the Education Ministry, Science, Education and Sports, Minister Predrag Sustar said on Wednesday, adding that the reforms was too important and too long-term a project to be overly personalised, "regardless of who this is about."

The curricular reform is too important to be politicised and personalised as it is a system that will be in force for many years, the minister said, calling on all participants in the process "to show more patience and cooperation."

The minister said that relieving the national team of experts in charge of the reform, led by Boris Jokic, of their duties could no longer be postponed at the moment.

He underscored that he had talked to members of the expert team on several occasions, trying to persuade them to continue their work, but added that there was "too little time and too much work to depend on that."

The minister said there would be a public debate on the curricular reform, which he considered very important.
