Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
reform of the education system to restore competitiveness and creativity;

Oh, right: now education is in charge of competitiveness.  I thought, from the usual neolib talking points, that competitiveness came from reducing costs, essentially labour costs. Now its school that has to teach it.

I suppose our kids need to learn they have to accept to work longer and harder and whatever flexible hours employers find most profitable, or lose their jobs. Best to start banging that into their dear little heads at what age?
