Bulgaria's Eduction Minister, Sergey Ignatov, declared Wednesday, he is looking to find a new Deputy that would be a match for Ken Robinson.

Robinson is a world renown education, arts, and human resources expert, who has worked as a consultant for a number of cabinets, private businesses and NGOs. One of his most popular speeches is "Schools Kill Creativity."

Ignatov believes Robinson is the person, who turned education in Great Britain around.

The Minister said he had several excellent candidates to replace former Deputy Milka Kodzhabashieva, who was dismissed from her post last Friday over a scandal involving regulations with questionable ethnic self-determination provisions.

According to Ignatov, the problem was exactly how to make a choice among so many good nominations, adding he needed a person already knowledgeable about the education reform mainly the new Education Act, which is now over 200 pages and must be finished by the end of 2010.

The person dealing with the Act is known to be Asen Aleksandrov, who is a school principal and a close adviser to the Minister.

The name of the new Deputy is expected to be revealed Thursday.

Ignatov said Kodzhabashieva was dismissed because her questionnaire was "from the 70s of the past century," but there was no drama because she would remain at the Ministry as an expert.
