Romanian language, sacrificed in new education law draft

Through the new draft education law developed by Democrat Liberals’ minister Daniel Funeriu, the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) has managed to win all the things it has been rallying for since 1990, daily ‘Jurnalul National’ wrote yesterday.

Education in minorities’ native tongue since kindergarten to college, free transport, accommodation and meals for minority students ho cannot go to school in their place of residence, additional funds for minorities’ schools and above all, the right to study history and geography in their native tongue. All these provisions, which were deemed unacceptable by previous education ministers, were included by Funeriu in the draft law. A former education minister, Social Democrat Ecaterina Andronescu, says minorities “have won all the rights they wanted, and Romania was anyhow given as an example as regards minorities’ rights to all other states in Europe.” Andronescu also said she would try to file some amendments to the law so as to offer Romanian students the same rights as those given to minorities.
