Ligia Deca also said that she will take all the necessary steps so that the education units don’t suffer in the “difficult” context generated by the economic and energy situation existing at global level.

“No least, I know that one of the fundamental needs of the education system is predictability. An essential goal of my mandate is precisely ensuring the predictable character of educational measures, so that pupils, teachers and parents know ahead of time how the education process is unfolding,” Deca added.

Ligia Deca was the PNL proposal for the post of Minister of Education, a position left vacant after the resignation of Sorin Cîmpeanu, accused of plagiarism.
