How did the Education laws come to be kept secret by Ligia Deca, even though it had promised transparency. The shadow commission that will analyze the laws

Jan 19, 2023

January 19, 2023 1091 readings Journalist Raluca Pantazi shows in an editorial for Edupedu how the current Minister of Education, Ligia Deca, broke her promise to put the Education Laws in public debate, these being kept secret and analyzed by a PNL – PSD commission. Raluca Pantazi notes that the laws will be made “transparent” to the public only after they reach the internal approval circuit, but without any possibility of their modification. “After abdicating to her own Government and accepting without any negotiation the lowest budget for the Ministry of Education in recent history, of 2.1% of GDP, Ligia Deca is abdicating for the second time from the objectives that she herself announced: the transparency promised by the laws at the beginning of the mandate evaporated in four months while he was in charge of the ministry”, it is stated in the text on Edupedu. According to the sources cited by Edupedu.ro, the appointed commission that will analyze and amend the Education Laws will include: Sorin Cîmpeanu, Monica Anisie and Marilen Pirtea from PNL, Mihnea Costoiu, Vasile Dîncu, Natalia Intotero, Florian Lixandru and Aura Danielescu from PSD, according to Edupedu.ro sources. After being adopted by the Government, with a deadline of February 15, the Deca Laws will be sent to the Parliament for emergency procedure and the constitution of a joint education committee in the Legislature, made up of deputies and senators from the two specialized committees, with a deadline of 15 March for Parliament’s approval of the legislative package, the cited sources note. Laws “filled” with political interests Raluca Pantazi goes on to show how the Minister of Education “succeeded in 4 months since he led the ministry to impose an omerta that reminds of the `families’ that once patronized all areas with financial resources that could be ticked”. “Education laws, i.e. the capital strategy of any state that wants not to die, the most important links that build the social and intellectual life of the country, are kept secret by Minister Ligia Deca, almost 4 months after assuming the mandate of Minister of Education from Sorin Cîmpeanu, the liberal accused himself of having conceived the education projects at the table with the companies and NGOs with direct financial interests in education. Shortly after the change of leadership, we see at the top of education the same thirst for power, the same compromise accepted with the aim of staying as long as possible on the minister’s chair, a springboard position for future high positions. What has changed Deca is only the set with which it negotiates: other NGOs and many politicians, governors and parliamentarians, all with their own agendas of influence”, notes Edupedu. Also, the journalist points out that until now not even one letter of the Deca League’s contribution to the Education Laws has been published and that, according to Edupedu sources, the plan of the Ciucă Executive is for the Deca Laws on the Government’s table to be emptied of the provisions that generated the biggest critics in the mandate of Sorin Cîmpeanu, but to be “refilled” by the interests of politicians when the law reaches the Parliament for debates to be approved as Law. “In Parliament, the parties that form the Government today (PNL, PSD and UDMR) hold the majority. It is also one of the reasons why Prime Minister Ciucă rejected the proposal put forward a week ago by Kelemen Hunor, the leader of the UDMR, to approve the Education Laws by assuming responsibility by the Executive”, notes Edupedu, citing political sources.
