World Bank education report ‘not binding’

Education Minister Costas Kadis

By Sinead Kelly

THE education ministry will, in the framework of the reform of Cyprus` educational system, look beyond those suggestions referred in the World Bank`s report, minister Costas Kadis has said.

He was referring to a World Bank report on the state of education in Cyprus, which was published on Thursday, and made a number of proposals for the radical overhaul of the underperforming system.

Asked to comment on the report and whether reforms were being prepared in line with the report’s findings, Kadis said that these reports serve as a useful tool for the ministry, insofar as it can implement suggestions and measures with a view to upgrading the system and addressing long-standing problems.

At the same time, Kadis noted that the report’s proposals were not commitments that needed to be met.

“The measures it suggests are not binding,” he said, therefore the Ministry will adopt measures which relate to and comply with its policy, along with other reports on the issues, as well as the views of experts, that will work on every issue included in the report.
