Bill on curriculum to include minority language teaching at schools

Children belonging to national minorities in our country will now be taught their own language. The Ministry of Education and Interior have set up a draft that has been issued for public consultation since the beginning of March. The draft decision provides that in the existing educational institutions, where the language of education is Albanian, students belonging to national minorities should study their history, traditions and culture in their own language, according to the curricula and programs approved by the Ministry of Education. But what are some of the criteria foreseen in the draft decision? The number of persons belonging to a national minority should be not less than 20% of the total number of residents of the administrative unit pertaining to them and the number of students in a class to be taught the national minority language should be not less than 15. There are 9 minorities in Albania, namely Greek, Serbian, Montenegrin, Macedonian, Roma, Egyptian, Bosnian, Bulgarian and Vlahs / Aromas. The bill has been presented in the framework of the government’s commitment to meeting international standards for the protection and respect of the rights of national minorities.
