They are not going to give up the standardization of the exam from Lithuanian language?

Ministry of education Mr. Dainius Pavalkis says that he is not going to give up the standardization of the exam from Lithuanian Language in Lithuanian schools and in  schools of national minorities.

„We should respect the Lithuanian language. This year should be dedicated of the Lithuanian language year.

Those instructions predicts more tolerate way of grading of student whose Lithuanian is another language.
