Tabaku: University education reflects the failures of the government's half-hearted reforms
Democratic MP Jorida Tabaku, in a congratulatory message to the pegagods and students, said that this academic year will not be easy since 20 thousand fewer students were registered.
The deputy emphasized that university education is reflecting the failures of a series of half-hearted and visionless reforms of a government that does them to wash its mouth.
While he said that important branches as old as humanity itself, such as mathematics, have turned into classes that have fewer students than the bureaucratic offices that register them.
Many congratulations to the students and teachers at the start of the new academic year.
It will not be an easy year for the university system since 20 thousand fewer students have been registered in the faculties, marking another negative record as a result of the departure of Albanians from the country. A negative record for a society that has 1 in 3 young people without higher education and without work.
In the last 10 years, it has failed to create a fair education system, in accordance with market requirements. Branches such as information technology today are not the future engine of the economy that they should have been. Meanwhile, branches as important and as old as humanity itself, such as mathematics, have turned into classrooms that have fewer students than the bureaucratic offices that register them.
University education reflects the failures of a succession of half-hearted and visionless reforms by a government that does them to wash its mouth. They reflect the lack of competition, meritocracy and incentives of a society that builds its future from faculty banks.
We must do everything to invest in education, not only with funds, but to put it at the center of policy-making and turn it into a competitive system that brings skilled professionals or scientific researchers to the market. Universities reflect the real decay of a government and its capture by small interests that do not aim at all at the advancement of knowledge but at the momentary power.
In these conditions, the heroism of the young men and women who are starting their journey today, but also of the teachers, is more important. We must try together to change this situation as there is life there is hope!
Good luck to the young people in this new journey.
