In Poland, the decision expel Ukrainian and Belarusian students from school was canceled
According to the Lower Silesian curator of education, the charter of the school in Yelch-Lyaskovitsy discriminates children from Ukraine and Belarus. It is reported by Upmp.news with reference to Polish radio.
The Lower Silesian curator of education completely abolished the school’s statute in the town of Yelch-Lyaskowice, which allowed removal of 16 adolescents from Ukraine and Belarus. The school’s leadership dismissed students because, as they stated, they did not have a legal mentor.
On January 22, 16 pupils from Ukraine and Belarus were removed from the list of pupils from the School Complex named after Yan Kasprovich in Yelchi-Lyaskovitsah. Students began schooling in September last year, went to gym classes and lyceums, arrived at Yelcha Lyaskovits on the initiative of the leadership of the handball club LKPR Moto-Jelcz Oława, in which they trained.
According to the directorate, the reason for their expel was the lack of a legal mentor. Students returning from holidays to Poland were detained on the Polish border. Teenagers were not allowed to enter the country.
As the Lower Silesia curator of education Roman Kovalchik said during a press conference on Monday, the article of the school’s statute in the town of Yelch-Lyaskowice, approved by the Pedagogical Council, contradicts Polish law. “The document discriminated against foreign students. According to the Law on the right to education, persons who are not Polish citizens can receive education and care under the same conditions as Polish citizens, and therefore there can not be any records that share it in the charter,” Kovalchik emphasized.
The curator informed that the school’s charter was changed on January 4. At that time, an article was recorded on the basis of which pupils from Ukraine and Belarus were expelled. Kovalchik stressed that the execution of the decision of the school principal on immediate removal from the list of students of Ukrainian and Belarusian adolescents was also canceled. “Ultimately, students have the right to return to school at any time. We have already reported this to the school principal,” said the curator.
He added that Polish borderguards were also informed about the decision. The curator added that the students already have new legal mentors.
“According to the directorate, the contact with the mentor of the students was complicated, but such a situation can not be a reason for the expel of students.”, – added Kovalchik. The decision on the case of the director of the school has not yet been taken. The case is intended to be submitted to the disciplinary commission.
