Forum of Parents from the Polish schools in Lithuania announces the mobilization to fight for Polish school
Forum of Parents from the Polish schools in Lithuania has made a statement, in which they voiced their categorical protest against the unification of the “Matura” examination of the Lithuanian language. Parents are outraged, that the education authorities of the country have not taken into account the demands of parents and children attending Polish schools. “We have a lot of determination to fight for decent treatment for our children, and we will not let them be hurt. We have already organized strikes and rallies, and we will continue to do so, in even bigger scale if our demands are ignored”- says the statement
Parents announce that, they may be forced to appeal to EU institutions in order to maintain the current form of the “Matura” exam of Lithuanian in Polish schools. “We wouldn’t want to do this, on the eve of the Lithuania’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, however, our children are the most important for us, and we will protect them, and fight for them until we see the results” – as one can read in the statement.
