The government will not step back on the matter of education for child refugees, stated Greek Education Minister Costantinos Gavroglou in parliament on Thursday.

According to figures presented by Gavroglou, 2,500 child refugees are currently following the education program in 94 schools, while 274 teachers have been hired for this purpose.

Answering to a question submitted by Communist Party deputy Ioannis Delis claiming that the number of child refugees participating in the education and psychological support program is very low, Gavroglou ,admitted that there are delays adding however, that exceptional work has been carried out by a scientific committee on the support of children refugees. He also referred to the contribution of 12,000,000 euro NSRF (National Strategic reference Framework) funds to be directed to that purpose.

Referring to the reaction on the implementation of the program, he lashed out at the “fascist and nazis movement existing in Greece and in Europe.” However, he did not deny that there is another part of people who also react without being identified with Golden Dawn, but it is a group of people who are afraid and need to be informed on the issue.
