Sejm member: compulsory Russian schools' curriculum in Latvian language is a provocation


11.10.2017

Press-service of Russian Ministry of Education and ScienceMember of the Latvian Parliament from the Concord party Janis Adamsons has stated on air of An Open Question TV programme that obligatory transferring of all schools into Latvian language is an attempt to destabilize the situation in the country, BaltNews reports. Ex-Minister of Internal Affairs supposes that final approval of the bill would result in protests of the Russian-speaking minority the same, which happened thirty years ago. Janis Adamsons has mentioned that there is nothing extremely bad about allowing schoolchildren to pass exams in Latvian as long as it is optional. It is happening in many schools, Adamsons added. However, the parliament member has expressed assuredness that this initiative of the Ministry of Education would be declined by the government.

The deputy has noted that initiators of this bill pursue their own interests forgetting the interests of the country.

Minister of Education and Science of Latvia Karlis Shadurskis stated last week that in 2020 all schools of the Baltic republic would teach all subjects of the school curriculum in the state language only.

As Russkiy Mir reported earlier, starting 2019/2020 school final exams would be passed in the state language only. This novelty became a controversial topic among specialists in the field of education.
