From September on, 118 elementary schools and preschools will be deleted from the school map of Greece. In particular, the decision concerns 31 elementary schools and 87 preschools, while 17 elementary schools and 12 preschools will merge with other schools.
However, apart from the closings, the Ministry of Education has proceeded to the establishment of three elementary schools, which it will staff with teachers when the school units are ready to open.
According to the data released by the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Culture and Sports, the closings and mergers will save 79,000 euros for 2013- as the changes will be implemented in the middle of the fiscal year- while in 2014 saving resources will amount to 228,000 euros.
