“Our school is finding itself again and next year will be an important year. In Italy we have 8,100 schools, we have given 150 million for all and 40 million for the most difficult areas. Our school has always kept that thread open with students, albeit with many difficulties. But be careful, the school is the mirror of our community, the school reflects who we are, reflects fears, frailties and hopes. I do not see enough reflected hopes, I would like more hopes to arise even from the country that we are, a country that has a school that has paid attention to inclusion like no other school in Europe “. This was stated by the Minister of Education Patrizio Bianchi during the presentation of the 9th national research report of the “Proteo Generation” observatory. “I believe that – he added – we must be proud of the fact that our country has managed to reopen schools, as well as of a vaccination campaign that seemed incredible. We have been able to restart our country”.
