Education Minister Eugen Jurzyca will not sign a deal with software contractor Agemsoft worth €6-12 million to deliver a digital education program, Planet of Knowledge.

Jurzyca said, as quoted by the SITA newswire, that the ministry had decided not to buy the product based on several months of talks. He stressed that the ministry proceeded prudently and in a transparent way when making the decision. Jurzyca said he had informed the company of his decision on Tuesday, October 4.

The digital curriculum was intended for elementary and high schools maths, physics, chemistry, biology and natural sciences classes. Over recent weeks, the Sme daily and the Týždeň weekly have highlighted several factual mistakes in the project, in both its Slovak and English versions.
