- LAShOR and FHRUL are criticizing plan of the Ministry of Education and Science to close more than 100 schools
- Leaders of nationalistic organisations appeal to all right wing ethnic Latvian parties to form united election list for upcoming municipal elections
The Latvian Association for Support of Schools with Russian Language of Instruction (LAShOR) and the political party For Human Rights in United Latvia (FHRUL) issued a statement criticizing plans of the Ministry of Education and Science to close more than 100 schools with insufficient number of students in order to economise state funds. If the plan is accepted, small countryside schools and some Russian language schools in Riga will be closed. The LAShOR and FHRUL consider that it is inappropriate to economise state funds at the expense of schools because the school is a cultural centre, especially in the countryside.
