MPs from the ruling coalition on the parliamentary education committee adopted nearly 200 amendments to the Education Bill, which has 163 articles, the SITA newswire wrote.

Education Minister Ján Mikolaj stated that the bill maintained integrity, "it has only been polished down to the last detail" and "he is sending it to the parliament "with a clear conscience".

The opposition unsuccessfully demanded a postponement to the reform, which should begin in September. They argue that crucial changes done at the last moment will bring chaos. Moreover, the MPs will no longer know what version they are approving, they said. SITA
