Constitutional Court of Yakutia discussed obtaining native language-education
Yakutia 24 TV channel: October 17, the republic pedagogical community discussed realization of the right to obtain education in the native language in the Constitutional Court.
In the region, students get the state educational standards with a consideration of national, ethnocultural and other characteristics of the region. The parents and children themselves choose the language in which they would like to be taught.
Additional classes and places are created for this, but the problem of the lack of schools and staff is everywhere.
“In Russia, there are federal state educational standards that provide the possibility of receiving education in native languages from among the languages of the peoples of the Russian Federation. Accordingly, there has risen the issue of the legal mechanism for implementation of the citizens’ right to obtain education in their native language, that are the Sakha and Russian in our republic,” said Oleg Mironovsky, head of the Yakutia Constitutional Court secretariat.
Final decision will be announced on November 13, 2019.
