Children should start school at the age of four, according to Bulgaria’s new Education Minister, Aneliya Klisarova.

However, the newly appointed Minister has admitted that the country does not have the necessary infrastructure in place for the measure to be implemented.

Klisarova, who took oath of office Wednesday, has told the Standart daily that the number of kindergartens in Bulgaria should be increased.

The Education Minister also emphasized that tougher control should be imposed on private schools. She reminded that the former center-right GERB government allowed public funding for private schools, which she believes may lead to the establishment of a great number of private schools – sometimes with questionable qualities.
