The local Education Ministry said Thursday that a working group will draft a plan for addressing the issue in schools.

According to Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer, which rates citizens’ perceptions of corruption, Bosnia is one of the worst-rated countries in Europe and Central Asia.

The ministry says children should learn the causes, forms and consequences of corruption so they can develop values which resist corruption.

Bosnia’s education system is fragmented with 12 regions having their own ministries and only Sarajevo is considering such a measure.
