Event description

Demonstration in support of Russian-language schools. Several hundred people gathered in front of the government of Latvia. People demanded to abandon plans of Russian schools conversion to education on Latvian language, which is scheduled for September 2018. Also among the requirements - to cancel the legal restrictions for learning in Russian, to restore network of Russian-language schools and stop the discrimination against the graduates of these schools, compared with those who graduated from the Latvian schools. Today in Latvian minority schools 60% of subjects taught in the state language, 40% - minority language. Materials of centralized final exams are prepared in Latvian language, but they can also be passed on the language of learning.
