Bulgarian Schools to Start Programming Classes in 3rd Grade

The Bulgarian Minister of Education, Krasimir Valchev, revealed the upcoming changes in the educational system. He underlined the importance of technology and computer education, as well as introducing kids to career development from an early age.

Valchev stated: “Today, the labor market says that the cadres with technical education have higher wages than those with higher education, and that difference will only increase in the upcoming years.” With this statement, the minister launched a new program for IT education for high-schoolers. Programming was also said to start at 3rd grade.

Valchev added: “Its very hard to prognose the long-term period of education, but we are actualizing 2000 school programs. We implemented the dual education in order to open up the needs of the market, and we are clearing up the normative order to clean up some of the obstacles in its implementations in gymnasiums [specialized high-schools].”

One of the problems faced by Bulgaria’s educational system remains the advanced age of its teachers. There’s a planned increase in salaries for 2019. However, the money an educated technical cadre can make in the field will most likely be more than the state-funded school system can afford.
