School closures, protest in front of the ministry, activists: Teachers threatened, students take wood with them
A protest took place today in front of the Ministry of Education, after the latter's decision to close schools for three days due to the low temperatures that have covered the country.
The protest was called by the Civic Resistance organization to hold the ministry accountable for not meeting the minimum condition in schools, that of heating.
With heaters in their hands and ironizing the "needs" the state may have, activists said they were willing to help.
One of the activists highlighted some of the concerns that are today in various schools in the country, while accusing that heating in schools is not managed properly.
They left the electric heaters in front of the Ministry of Education, while they said that the teachers do not come up with a position on this issue, but also on other issues of the education system, as they are threatened with dismissal.
"Threats of dismissals, transfers from the workplace. We are here to say that citizens support teachers, who for one reason or another can not say today 'I'm cold'. It is meaningless today how to have 26 million euros and no heating, we are with digital registers and schools have no heating.
In Delvina schools without water, without heating, in Maqellarë without water, without heating, students take wood with them. In Durrës there is a school without doors, without windows. In Maliq the collective classroom, where the primer is taught, is where Newton's laws are taught in the fourth grade. In Poliçan the teaching takes place in a pool because the school is damaged.
We are giving these heaters, and we ask for the help of the media to ask the minister where these heaters went, so that they are not stolen by the officials of this republic. "We will leave it at the door of the Ministry of Education and we hope that it will know how to manage them ," said one of the activists.
