POLAND IS READY TO ACCEPT CHILDREN OF FOREIGNERS AND POLISH BILINGUAL CHILDREN
Polish education system is ready to accept not only foreign children, but also bilingual children of Polish descent. It is reported by Upmp.news with reference to Polish Radio.
The Ministry of National Education of Poland is prepared to accept not only foreigners, but also Poles coming with bilingual children. Minister of National Education of Poland Anna Zalyevska stressed on this, commenting on the intentions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration to change the rules of stay in centers for foreigners.
The draft new order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration suggests that children requesting international protection in Poland be able to fulfill their school responsibilities at the centers for foreigners they live in.
Nowadays in Poland minor foreigners who ask for international protection in Poland go to schools where Polish children are studying. “However, the possible risk of mass influx of foreigners, especially the large increase in the number of school-age children, as well as cases of negative attitude of the local community to foreigners who are asked to provide international protection, lead to the need to find solutions that will help to facilitate and improve the learning process for foreign children in Poland” – is written in the justification for the changes.
According to Anna Zalevska, the Ministry of Education of Poland is prepared not only for the reception of foreigners, as foreigners already are in the system of education, but also to the return of persons of Polish descent. “We are waiting for the Poles who come with bilingual children,” she added.
At the same time, the minister noted that this topic was relevant in 2016, when she became Minister of National Education. “In this regard, we have not only provisions about the preparatory department, but also money and teachers that allow to involve as quickly as possible every foreigner into the education system without waste of time,” she said.
