Iliadou-Tachou Sofia, Kalerante Evaggelia, Tsigeni Paraskevi: PASOK’s education policy about the transferring of Greek students attending Foreign Universities (1982-1991): A Study Case –Florina’s Pedagogical Academy


We review the legal stipulations over exam admissions of Greek Students attending foreign (especially Balkan) Pedagogical Academies to Greek ones, which reflect the Greek government’s political predilection to attract back Greek students, lending special interest in the related legislation, as well as the political intent underlying the particular legislation. The admission legislative rule is reviewed against the political environment that favors the authorization of Greek student transfers from abroad. Florina’s Pedagogical Academy, among others, has operated as a host institution and is our study case, which delves into the legislation enforcement and regulations of the admission system, highlighting testing and grading procedures, as well as broader deliberations within the academic community having to do with repatriated student placement. Florina’s Pedagogical Academy files provide information on entrance candidacies from foreign universities, especially Balkan ones.
