The society of teachers of Polish schools in Lithuania “ Macierz Szkolna” announced the results of the contest for the best polish schools in Vilnius region and the best teachers of the itemized school’s subjects. The contest takes the advantages of the differences which are between schools in villages and the cities. There are also different criteria of grading. The best polish school in Vilnius is  Gymnazjum dedicated to Adam Mickiewicz. In category of regional schools in cities the first place took Gimnazjum dedicated to K. Parczweskiego in Niemenczyn(Vilnius Region). In category of regional school there were two winners: high school dedicated to Saint Kazimierz in Miedniki (Vilnius Region) and high school dedicated to M. Balinski in Jaszuny( Solecznicki Region).

There is a great amount of honored teachers every year who’s work and anticipation were appreciated.

The view of standardization of the final exam at the end of high school from Lithuanian Language also put the Lithuanian teachers in bad situation.
