The amendment was approved to make the Law more comprehensive, said on Wednesday to the press the Education Minister, Pinda Simão.
To the minister, who spoke at the end of the 6th ordinary session of the Cabinet Council, the amendment also aimed at accommodating the academies, since the country has one that lacked specific legislation.
"Before the amendment, the previous law stated that academy is specialized in carrying out advanced studies at the level of scientific and professional graduate", he said.
He reported that the type of academy, such as Namibe fisheries academy, was not covered by the Basic Law on the Education System.
In this specific case, according to the minister, changes were introduced with the definition of the typology of institutions, which gives the possibility of having higher education institutions at the level of polytechnic institutes.
