Roumanian Government Promises Restoration of Minority School Rights

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)

The Liberal Government which fell in March withdrew from the schools of the minorities the right of issuing leaving certificates to their pupils. The result was that many of the jewish pupils were removed by their parents from the Jewish schools and sent to Government schools where the certificates were obtainable.

The Ministry of Education has now adopted the following decision in this matter: In view of the impossibility of all the applications of the minority schools that they should be given public right (the right to issue leaving certificates) passing through the permanent Consilium (the body charged with the granting of public right), and also of considering the applications of those schools which have been deprived of this right which they enjoyed previously, it is decided:

Article 1.- All minority schools which have been deprived of public right are permitted as an exceptional rule pending the fulfillment of the forms required by law, to hold examinations as if they enjoyed public right.

Article 2.- All these schools will function according to the old programme and only from the beginning of the new year will apply their programme according to the new law.
