Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, you have got it right. However, the government has been effectively stalled on the reform after the protests, protests which are still going on.

The present position is to let time pass and hope that will take the wind out of the movement, move it off the front pages.

The best thing would be that the government stops its infantile smear campaign and confront itself with the deans, professors and students on specific issues to constructively reform the educational system rather than push through discredited, old systems.

As for this ad-on that will allow financially solvent institutes the possiblity to hire researchers or receive more fundings, it would appear all right in a proper context. The problem is that it is being proposed as part of a budget bill without any effective guidelines to determine what institutes are solvent or not.

As Calamandrei would put it, the "solvent" institutes are likely to be cherry picked- certainly not on educational criteria.
