Minister Krasimir Valchev: SELFIE, conducted in 900 schools in the country, does not aim to determine gender

Sofia. The aim of the SELFIE assessment, conducted in over 900 Bulgarian schools, is not to determine gender identity, Minister of Education and Science Krasimir Valchev said to reporters. His comment comes a day after reports that students over 9 years of age in the country fill out a survey from the SELFIE platform which includes a question about their sex. There are four alternative answers – ‘boy’, ‘girl’, ‘other’ and ‘prefer not to say’.
Valchev said the tool was the same for all EU countries and very important for state policy in education in the digital age. “The initial information we have is that the reason for this answer is that some countries have adopted additional regulatory decisions […] I have always said that I do not support the preaching of gender ideology in school,” the minister said. He further said he had received no indication of public tension from those 900 schools.
Focus recalls: SELFIE was presented in Bulgaria on November 29, 2018. It allows teachers and pupils from all over the country to assess digital technology in schools and acquired digital skills. It covers six key areas for digital education – teaching and learning, school management, infrastructure and equipment, professional development, evaluation and students’ digital competence.
