It will be based on traditional after-school programs, clubs and schools (sports and music schools, etc.), as well as newly established technology parks for children. Such was the Education Ministry’s response to the ongoing debate on the preferable model for supplementary school education, or after-school activities, as it used to be called. There are two predominant approaches to the problem. Some say that children...

If the initiative...
