Education Minister Says Patriotism in Schools Not Enough

Ljubno ob Savinji, 8 September - Education Minister Milan Zver said on Saturday that the ministry was trying for some years now to insert more patriotism into the curricula, but added that such efforts were not enough as the school was not enough of a socialising factor to instill an individual with love for the homeland and the nation's history.
