photo (c) The Daily

The government passed its amendment to the Schools Act, which among other things will see English become a compulsory subject in elementary schools. This move will take effect from beginning of September next year, but it is still unclear from what year the pupils will receive lessons.

Another revision concerns the issue of school reports for elementary and secondary school students, as they will now only be issued once a year instead of every half year.

School holidays also got attention, and will be determined every three years in advance by 31 May of the respective calendar year.

the revision also stipulates that the Ministry of Education will provide all approved textbooks and workbooksto schools free of charge, and will even have their equivalents in Braille.
