Crete (like Macedonia and Mytilene), having established a different educational system before its unification with Greece, was intended to be used as an example of the educational reforms that the liberal governments of Eleftherios Venizelos planned for Old Greece after its geographical and political «remove» (1913-1914). With their liberal ideas, Tsirimokos and Glinos, implementing delaying policies, pursued, through the introduction of the two six-year cycles of education operating in the New Provinces and especially in Crete, the educational regeneration of the country. However, they were to encounter intense reactions in the method of the educational incorporation of the New Provinces by Old Greece. With the short-lived educational reform of 1917, education was structured on the basis of the example of the New Provinces. However, in 1920, this attempt was rescinded, to be finally repeated in 1929, when the two six-year cycles (6+6) eventually replaced the old Bavarian educational structure (4+3+4). However, the political events that followed did not allow the consolidation and expansion of a modern educational structure. Venizelos would resign in 1932, and education, left unregulated once more, would be once again be the great loser.
