The moment when a group of children sing to the head of state
These days, the President of Romania is in Sibiu, his visit including a visit to the Samuel von Brukenthal National College, where Klaus Iohannis taught physics from 1989 to 1997. He was accompanied by his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier, visiting Romania.
The head of state was greeted by a group of children who sang him the song “A Wonderful World”, while tens of thousands of teachers took to the streets to call for their right to a decent living.
How Klaus Iohannis reacted
In the video images below, Klaus Iohannis seemed delighted, even moved, by the little ones, but in the end the lack of experience in these situations kind of spoke for itself.
“-Are you all at school?
-I am impressed.
-Study well, it’s worth it.”, is the clumsy discussion to have with the students.
The president also tried to make a joke, telling the students who were waiting for him that there are also good parts of the teachers’ strike: they have a free schedule and they also chose a picture of two heads of state.
“Shall we take a picture?… Stay like that so you’re not in the back…. I wish you a beautiful day! You see that even the strike has some advantages,” he told his wife’s students at the Samuel von Brukenthal National College.
What a message Klaus Iohannis sent
The president also sent a message to parents, students and teachers and told them to trust that things will improve in the educational system, especially in terms of salaries.
Klaus Iohannis added that he expected more discussions to appear in the public space on the fact that the Parliament adopted the new education laws, in ordinary procedure.
