(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The national minorities school question in Roumania was the subject of consideration at the last meeting of the Roumanian cabinet.

It was learned that Minister of Education Petrowitch stated that he would confer with representatives of the national minorities concerning Secretary of State Angelescu’s private school bill, in which changes are necessary.

The Minister of Education issued an ordinance permitting teachers in the secondary schools of the national minorities, who were dismissed because of insufficient knowledge of the Roumanian language to apply for re-examination this year. It is expected that this ordinance will give many Jewish teachers the opportunity to be reinstated.
