The gaps in the educational system of Republic of Bulgaria and how it affects the university students.
Education is seen as the driving force of a country’s economy, culture and advancement. How can we expect Bulgaria to be economically well when its educational system doesn’t work the way it is supposed to be.

This information gap that university students have is normal because they come from a...
