Bucharest, May 31, 2023. The Rector of the University of Bucharest (UB), prof. Marian Preda, PhD, in solidarity with the teaching staff and auxiliary staff of the University who, in recent days, have shown their support for the demands of their colleagues in pre-university education, many of them graduates of UB, expresses, in turn, his solidarity with the requests aimed at ensuring decent education conditions.
The claims, both in terms of salary and legislation, but, above all, those regarding investments in the material base and infrastructure are not simple desires but represent urgent needs without which the Romanian education system cannot be a performing one. For over 30 years, policy makers have declared education as a national priority, but the percentages of GDP allocated to education and research have remained among the lowest in the European Union. If we really want an educated Romania, education must be financed!
