The Lithuanian exam’s fate hangs in the balance

Before today’s (12th February) visit of the Prime Minister  Algirdas Butkevičius in Warsaw yesterday in Vilnius the fate of secondary-school graduates was determined. 

They are to take an exam in state language unified for Lithuanian schools and national minorities’ schools and they had only 2 years to prepare to it, while their colleagues from Lithuanian schools have been preparing to this exam from the first grade.

“It is a pressing problem and we have to find a solution immediately” – a vice-chairman of the Parliament Jarosław Narkiewicz told “Kurier” yesterday. With regard to a troublesome situation a MP did not want to reveal the details of arrangements with coalition partners on concessions for secondary-school graduates.

Last week, during his visit in Soleczniki, the Prime Minister  Butkevičius spoke about possible concessions.

Not concreting what these concessions are going to consist of, he said that on 11th February the minister of education and science will prepare an appropriate decree which will be considered and approved on the meeting of Political Council of the ruling coalition. The meeting was planned at the end of yesterday, so the resolutions of the Council have been unknown until the close of this issue.
