Vilija Filipovičienė: The number of students in Polish schools won’t decrease
Really, I did not know that the possibility of teaching a mother tongue for national minority students exists for 9 years already – Vilija Filipovičienė, the MP from the Labour Party ensures.
Guest of today’s Political Lounge added that nowadays the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania prepares a special programme of teaching a mother tongue in Lithuanian schools. ‘I don’t assume that this will contribute to a further decline of the number of students in Polish schools’ – says the MP.
