Religious Studies Remain Optional In Romanian High Schools

The representatives of the Romanian Ministry of Education announced, at the meeting with the representatives of the Romanian Orthodox Church (BOR) that religious studies would be maintained in the high school curricula, but they will remain optional, Ministry adviser Mihaela Suciu told MEDIAFAX.


"The Ministry takes on the obligation to offer students the possibility of studying religion in high schools, as before. But the parents will decide on the type of confession and if the child will attend the class or not, before the child turns 16. After 16, the student will decide on the matter," Suciu said.
