Before the new academic year managed to start, the Czech School Inspection released a report, focusing on the last year. That year of education was considerably affected by the pandemic, which forced students in and out of schools, while many of their families were also destabilized by the crisis. This shows in their results, as tens of thousands of students seem to have such problems with the material they were supposed to learn last year, that it will take more than a year for them to catch up, which could drastically hinder their academic abilities. According to the report, there are 14.5 thousand elementary school students, 22 thousand middle school students and 18 thousand high school students in this situation.
Prague College becomes Prague City University! Seventeen years ago, Prague College opened its doors to a handful of students in Prague’s Vinohrady district. The college offered a British-style education in the heart of Europe with an unusual interdisciplinary approach that explored the interconnected nature of business, IT and design.

The Czech Republic is ranked in the top 10 places for foreigners and the benefits of living here are obvious. The quality of life, public transportation infrastructure and the country’s central location in Europe are among the well-known reasons. But one downside for many foreigners is the prospect of integrating into Czech society. A complex language, a culture that can be fairly insular, a sometimes impenetrable bureaucracy are among the challenges. The Czech government recognizes that these difficulties can mean some foreigners never integrate into society as well as they should, and now the government has created a new “adaptation-integration” course for foreigners. Here’s what you need to know: The classes are mandatory for some foreigners If you received your
The Czech government has published a new document regarding the future of Czech education on its website. This document includes a calculation of the necessary funds to give all Czech public school teachers a raise. This sum is apparently 600 million to a billion crowns. While this may seem as a steep sum, the government apparently has the sum reserved for this purpose. However, it is also important to mention that this money is pulled from the massively inflated government budget, which has put the country in much debt already.

Compared to a simple scanned copy of a paper diploma, a blockchain diploma cannot be forged, and is easily traceable and verifiable by anybody, while staying secure. In a world without a central diploma verification authority, blockchain diplomas are a great tool to increase student and workforce mobility. Another benefit is that
