Chilean universitiesThe Chilean government announced a bill that will be sent to Congress to amend the certification system of universities, focus of a corruption scandal.

The initiative aims to give life to a National Accreditation Agency, and eliminate the National Accreditation Commission (CNA), whose former president Luis Eugenio Diaz is in preventive prison for a notorious case of profit in education.

On Thursday, it was announced the bill that is aimed at raising the quality of teaching and tries to prevent conflicts of interest that affect the certification of the universities.

This new Accreditation Agency must give approval for universities to provide graduate degrees and receive any State funding. This accreditation will take six years.

The new president of the questioned CNA, Matko Koljatic, said to Radio Cooperativa that he considers necessary to introduce profound changes to the current system of higher education, but personally, in the case of universities, he supports profit though regulated.
