Crisis: Greece; over 100 state kindergartens to be closed

25 July, 12:12

    (ANSAmed) ? ATHENS, JULY 25 - More than 100 state-run kindergartens and elementary schools are to be shut down all over Greece over the summer and almost 30 more will be merged, saving the government 228,000 euros a year. The Education Ministry said Wednesday that a total of 118 schools would be closed and 29 merged, while two new kindergartens and three elementary schools would be opened. The ministry, as Kathimerini online reports, decides each summer what changes to make to schools but this year saving public money has also played a role in the decision-making process. (ANSAmed).
