Education Ministry set to scrap extended schools program
The Education Ministry plans to scrap its extended schools program as of the new academic year starting in September, Kathimerini understands.
Under the existing program, school day is extended to 4 p.m. The two extra hours, which help working parents, are used for extra-curriculum activities.
Abolishing the program will allegedly enable the ministry to move some 3,000 teachers to other schools plagued by staff shortages.
