Altai Commissioner inspected conditions in a school

12 May 2017

Since the beginning of the year Commissioner for Human Rights in the Altai Territory Boris Larin has received several complaints about problems in a regular school in Krutishka.

According to the applicants, the quality of education in the school is questionable. In particular, negligence is shown towards teaching of mathematics, Russian and foreign languages. Some teachers do not have padagogical education.

Having scrutinized the arguments in the application, Boris Larin directed an inquiry to the administration of the Shelabolikhinsky District in the Altai Territory. As a result of an extraordinary inspection, it was found that three teachers did not have a proper qualification. The parents of the pupils also complained about catering and violation of sanitary and hygiene standards.

Taking into account the number of applications and complaints, Boris Larin visited the school, met its headmaster and teaching staff and also talked to the parents of the pupils.

The Commissioner identified a serious problem with sewerage, heater and air ventilation systems. According to Headmaster, the school is lacking in financial resources for school maintenance. Boris Larin emphasized the need to renew the rotten pipes and hygiene equipment as soon as possible.

The Commissioner addressed a letter to Minister of Education and Science of the Altai Territory Alexander Zhidkikh requesting to assist in solution of the problems of the Krutishka regular school.

The situation is being under personal supervision of the Commissioner.
