Children to have EU lessons

PUPILS will have to learn about the EU and its institutions starting from the 2004-2005 school year according to a proposal by the cabinet and the Education Ministry.

Around 115,000 new textbooks will be distributed to schools for that purpose, said the state run TASR news agency.
