In Kiev held a rally due to the closure of one of the high schools

Under the building of the capital Lyceum â„–142 was held to protest against the closure of educational institutions for repair, which was attended by about 600 parents and students.

It is reported by the Informant.

The protesters said that the Lyceum is closed because of the alleged emergency condition, however, no order is not granted. Also it was not indicated at what time close the school.

“On March 10 we announced the closure of the institution in connection with an emergency condition. In December was the expert evaluation regarding the emergency condition of the premises. And in March we closed. So actually 2 months children went to the emergency room? This casts doubt on the conclusion of experts. Just maybe someone took the territory of educational institutions“, – told the Chairman of parental Committee.

Parents reported that just today received an order from the Department of education at the alternative school, dated March 6, which serves to temporarily take pupils in school â„–159 and â„–26. However, according to parents, these schools are not able to accommodate additional 534 student.

“These institutions are not able to accommodate all 500 students of our Lyceum. So you will have to study in two shifts. Besides, 159 the school has even more disrepair, but somehow it is working“, – said the Chairman of the Committee.

As noted by the first Deputy head of Solomensky RGA Vladimir Bialkowski, the decision to close was taken for the safety of students, as “now sharply rising ground water. This can lead to the collapse of the building.“

School Director Olga Balogova left to journalists, allegedly with the order, but quickly ran away never showed the document. Later, once again running away from journalists, said that all the documents will be published on the school website. But all the requests to show them to journalists and parents were ignored.

Parents of students don’t trust peer review. The Department of education say that the test was doing an independent company that won the tender. But the parents claim that it has already filed 4 criminal cases and they can’t believe them.

My parents tried to explore the self-educational institution for accidents, but they do not give. The Director showed only cracks in the walls that supposedly increase. Some of the cracks were sealed with stickers with the date eight years ago, which is not torn.

Acting head of Department of education of the Solomenska RSA Natalya kuhareva told, that there will be negotiations with the rector of KPI regarding the placement of students. She added that the money for repair will ask for KCSA, but no plan, no money yet.

Parents promised that distance learning will last for several days and invited them to the next meeting on March 12.

We will remind, on March 11 it was reported that in Kiev the state of students of Lyceum â„–142 in Solomenskiy district was transferred to distance education, and the institution decided to close it.
