«As to my information, the new Law „On Education» should be voted within the Parliament before the Teacher Day - a professional holiday of our educators. It had to be considered earlier - within the last week of the previous session, however the lawmakers did not have enough time.

It is to be admitted, as of last year Oct 6, 277 lawmakers had voted for the draft law «On Education» within the first reading.
