(en) Greece, Rosinante ESE: Thousands of students outside universities - Immediate abolition of EBE, no exclusion from education [machine translation]

Date Fri, 3 Sep 2021 10:04:22 +0300

Announcement of the Sectoral Education Association of A.P. Rosinade for the Minimum Admission Base on the occasion of the results of the national exams and the exclusion of 40,000 students / three from higher education ---- As early as the beginning of June, the Ministry of Education announced the number of students admitted to the country's universities. Obviously, the number did not increase, but decreased. The rate of the Minimum Admission Base (EBE) is one of the first applications of law 4777, further intensifying the class barriers in the field of Higher Education. ---- Result: A total of 40,229 students were excluded from access to public universities. The effects of the establishment of EBE can not be characterized as a "bad assessment" by the government or mentally. This is a methodical plan, according to which the only ones who will be able to study are those who have the financial ability to afford the tuition fees of the Colleges, whose degrees were equated by the government with the public universities. With too much vulgarity, Kerameos stated that "Our young people are not trapped in universities" at the same time that Mitsotakis was traveling with his daughter to the USA, shortly before she started her studies at Yale.

The state's aspirations for a university for the few and the elite, serve once again the needs of capital and stand in the way of young people's dreams. For years, the exhausting educational model, in addition to the sterile competition and the suffocating intensification that characterizes it, presupposes the possibility of meeting the financial requirements of the tuition centers. This year, the candidates of the national exams are also invited to compete with EBE.

This examination model resulted in the non-coverage of places for admission in a number of faculties, with 16 departments with zero admissions, 17 with one / one admission and 4 with two. In fact, regarding schools with required special courses for access to them - which were not even taught in high schools - EBE managed to exclude all candidates with several cases, with a typical example the Architecture of DUTH.

Obviously, next year there will be talk about these "non-functional" and "useless" departments of universities by the government and consequently their merger with other schools, most likely irrelevant.

As the Education Union of the Rosinande Anarcho-Syndical Initiative, as employees in education and as students, we oppose the state policy, which serves the needs of capital. In this onslaught of working-class youth, the only way out is the mass struggle against the exclusion of education and its transformation into a class privilege. Defending the public and free nature of education, as well as the idea of a different school / university that produces knowledge based on social needs - and not those of capital - are concepts as relevant as ever.

Immediate abolition of EBE

-Fight against class barriers

-Against competition, solidarity

-Public and free education for all and for all, no exclusion from education

-They organize our poverty, to organize our class
