BC, Riga, 17.01.2017.Print version
While revising the network of higher educational establishments and making decisions on their reorganization, the Education and Science Ministry has excluded regional universities from its reform plans for now, reports LETA.

Education and Science Minister Karlis Sadurskis (Unity) said at the Saeima education, culture and science committee meeting today that regional universities are essential.

Looking at specialized higher educational institutions, Sadurskis said higher education should be linked with science. Meanwhile, culture and arts education will not be affected by the reorganization plans, at least not until 2020.

He said that the ministry does not see any necessity for change of the legal status of higher educational institutions, but sees the necessity for consolidation of study programs.
