Minister Krasimir Valchev: With cameras in schools, we risk using technology as substitute for missing trust

Sofia. With the proposed cameras, we risk using technology as a substitute for the missing trust between parents and teachers, Minister of Education Krasimir Valchev told reporters regarding a demand for the installation of cameras in schools and kindergartens, FOCUS News Agency reports. “We held this debate 6 or 7 months ago. We organised a meeting with parent organisations and teachers’ unions. In our opinion, cameras cannot replace the basic element on which the education system is based. It is trust from all of us and making a decision as parents to entrust our children to teachers for many years,” the minister said. According to him, cameras will likely demotivate teachers. Instead, the ministry is encouraging dialogue between education institutions and parents and has proposed a list of good practices to schools and kindergartens. The case of mistreatment of children in a kindergarten in Burgas shows unprofessional tolerance on the part of the director and other staff members, Valchev said.
The minister defended a decree that will exempt Roma children from a criterion in the admission of first graders, which caused tension in society. The decree will allow the municipal authorities to continue implementing desegregation policies, he explained.
