I intend to continue reducing the social and economic gaps in education , and to increase the equality of opportunities for students from all population groups and from all parts of the country. I believe that our main role is to ensure to each student that the social and economic background from which they came will not dictate in advance the course of their lives, and will not be an obstacle for them in the future."
