The Institutions expressed their opinion about some possible improvements in the Draft–Plan of Action:

  • To think of a solution how to collect the fines, which will serve as a punishment measure, in order to increase the efficiency of the law.
  • To increase Institutional Collaboration in order to manage the individual cases which is one of the most important issues of Children’s Rights, and must be regulated with sublegal acts and not with Formal Institutional Agreement.
  • In order to have an effective psychologist’s intervention at school, it’s necessary to have a psychologist in every school during all the days of the week.
