Latvian schools may completely stop teaching Russian

Latvian schools may completely stop teaching Russian

The Latvian Ministry of Education and Science intends until 2026 to oblige schools to provide for study one of the official languages ​​​​of the European Union or any other, which is regulated by intergovernmental agreements in the field of education, the LSM newspaper writes.


This means that Russian will not be provided as an option.

The department believes that this approach will be extremely useful for Latvian youth, as it will open up great opportunities not only for integration into the European educational process, but also make it easy to find work in other EU countries.

The authors of the material remind that the first foreign language in Latvian schools is taught from the first year of study. As a rule, this is English, but it is possible to study another official language of the EU. Teaching a second foreign language in Latvia starts in the 4th grade. At the same time, the choice in favor of a particular subject is made by the leadership of the school, and not by the students.

As a result, according to LSM.lv, last year's survey showed that Russian is studied in more than half of Latvian schools today.

At the same time, due to a significant increase in demand for EU languages, as well as a sharp decline in the popularity of the Russian language, both the Ministry of Education and Science of Latvia and the National Education Center (VISC) receive many requests from parents to provide one of the languages ​​for study the European Union as a second foreign country for their children.

To resolve this issue, the Ministry of Education and Science will develop amendments to the basic educational standard, as a result of which all schools will have to teach one of the European languages ​​or a foreign language, which is regulated by intergovernmental agreements.

In turn, the aforementioned transition period until 2026 will allow educational institutions to attract new teachers and retrain existing foreign language teachers.

It is reported that the department is already conducting preliminary negotiations with the University of Latvia regarding the training and retraining of foreign language teachers.

At the same time, as the newspaper writes, given the serious shortage of teachers in most other subjects, it is unclear where new foreign language teachers will come from.

      Latvians do not need to spread rot on the Russian language, but try to save their own.
      The current rising generation of the Baltic States has now turned its gaze not to the depths of national history, but to the expanses of the Anglo-Saxon world, where the main, and sometimes the only, language is English. So soon no one will need Latvian, Lithuanian, and even more so Estonian in the Baltics, and the speakers of these languages ​​will disappear on their own in a couple of generations. crying

      I was surprised at the lack of meat products from local producers in stores in Latvia. I asked the locals how so? In the days of the USSR, everything was there, but now it is not. They say that after joining the EU, all livestock was ordered to be slaughtered and eaten, and now all their meat is Polish. From the factories of VEF and Radio Engineering, whose products were in great demand in the republics of the Union, now there is practically nothing left. Instead of most of the workshops, there is a shopping center, and the remaining small production works according to Finnish and Swedish orders and has not produced anything of its own for a long time. Fish canning factories are closing.. What's left? That's right - Russophobia. Only she now earns a living there.

    Well, to hell with them! We would have to put things in order with the Russian language. Sometimes you read posts, so mom do not grieve! I am one of the most illiterate Soviet boys (I managed to make three mistakes in one word.

    States that impose bans on the use of the Russian language - the official language of the UN - should be expelled from the UN (or Russia) in disgrace.
    By the way, is the status of Russian as the state language of the Russian Federation legalized in Russia? There was no such law before. The state language of the Russian Federation is not the "language of Russians", it is the state language of the Russian Federation (Russia).

                        Good. Here in Russian schools they traditionally teach English, German and in some places French.

                        None of the listed languages ​​is the language of national minorities in Russia. And their exclusion from education will not lead to infringement of the rights of national minorities. You propose to condone the ban in Latvia for the Russian-speaking population to teach their native language.
                        And you know what, stop promoting bans on the Russian language on a Russian-language resource. Go to sites in Latvian and practice eloquence there, I'm sure you will find like-minded people there.

                        for the Russian-speaking population to learn their native language.

                        There is not a word in the article about the prohibition for Russian-speakers to learn their native language.

    Briefly speaking. I understood from this article that in 2026 we will have to conduct NWO in Latvia.
    Ahhh, I thought I'd take a break.
