President Ivan Gašparovič signed the Education Act on June 17, ushering in the ruling coalition's vision for elementary schools and high schools, the SITA newswire wrote.

While debating the law in May, ruling coalition parties did not accept a single amendment from the opposition. In contrast, they supported several dozen changes from their own MPs. The opposition's request to return the bill to the Education Ministry for reworking failed to pass as well. The opposition also demanded the reform be postponed for a year, but that failed as well.
