ABSTRACT
The article discusses problems related to education reforms in Slovakia. The recent trouble was triggered by the decision in May 2005 of one of the junior coalition members, the New Civic Alliance, to oppose a university education reform championed by the Christian Democrat Movement (KDH) and, subsequently, to withhold its backing from KDH Education Minister Martin Fronc in a confidence vote brought by the opposition. It is suggested that the coalition and its constituent parties, would be best served by holding off elections as long as possible, as envisaged under its long-established game plan.
