Event description

The Latvian parliament approved in the final reading the law on the reform of school education. It provides for the transfer of Russian schools to the Latvian language of instruction. In particular, in the upper grades all lessons from 2020 will be taught only in the state language. The law caused great dissatisfaction in the Russian-speaking society. Parents of the Russian dete believe that the quality of education under such an approach will fall and Russian children will cease to be competitive in the local labor market. Opponents of the school reform during the consideration of the law in Parliament organized a small protest near the American Embassy and handed a petition to one of the staff of the diplomatic mission.
