Bulgarian Business Not Satisfied with Employees University Education
Only 8 % of company owners and managers are satisfied with the level of education of their young employees acquired in Bulgarian universities, according to a poll.
A total of 77 % of the polled believe that the knowledge gained in Bulgarian universities is insufficient, a survey of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) among its members showed.
Some 80% of respondents indicated that they see gaps in the professional skills of their employees, 56% - in their entrepreneurial thinking.
According to the survey, 77 % of entrepreneurs support the dual system of education (practical internships and theoretical learning).
BCCI points out three key factors for the success of the new system: improving the quality of teaching, good coordination of businesses and schools and tax incentives for the businesses.

Education is a problem in the whole EU.
It is the mentality that makes it worse. Also a problem you seem to find in the whole EU.
Discipline is another factor, also noticeable in the whole EU.
Being spoiled, ditto.
They need to realise that nothing comes out of the sky and that you need to work for it. When you are in the UK everything is a lot easier. Previous generations have build up the country.(not that we can say that will last much longer with all the debt)
The Bulgarian problem is: Because of the changes last decades they are still looking for generations that finally will build up something.
Shouting that someone else should do it seems to be a widely accepted phenomenon. Or leaving the country and choose the easy way.
There are very good and skilled people in Bulgaria. But it is extremely difficult to find them. And you will not get them by paying peanuts.
Education is not the secret, mentality is. People with the right mentality can make it everywhere.
I have no idea what the capabilities of Bulgarian graduates are, but be careful - here in Britain, we are constantly being told that our young people are rubbish and that foreign workers are better educated. The young are then replaced by foreign, cheaper workers, and youth unemployment climbs to unacceptable levels.
Stop the "extra muros" system
Reduce the annual holidays with 6 weeks
Organize classes between 8:30 am and 16:00, 5 days per week.
Reserve 1/2 day per week for sport and culture activities
Remove kids from the streets during school hours
Replace the schoolbooks by translations of schoolbooks from countries where education is successful
Evaluate the teachers and fire those with too much absence and incompetence.
Stop the use of mobiles during classes
Make a distinction in the level of the students. Today, everybody gets a high university degree. 3/4 don't deserve it. The system downgrades high potentials to the average.
It is not only the education. The way they look to life is also a big problem. Most of them are spoiled to the bone and cannot even understand simple guidelines OR they just do whatever they think is better.
Big responsibility is with the parents! Discipline is what they need!
And what do this people do, not having the slightest idea what they are talking about, go on the streets and shout ostavka while it is about time they start looking at their selves instead of blaming politicians (for which they voted mostly)
