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. Poles are doing really good on the exams from this language and sometimes the results are better from Lithuanians. So giving up this exam or change something is not what we are planning” said Pavalkis yesterday.
