Law on anti-discrimination regulations in public education passed

Lawmakers on Wednesday adopted anti-discrimination regulations in public education. The law approved with 143 votes in favour, 6 against and 12 abstentions will enter into force in January next year.

In line with the law, central budget support for the operator of primary schools could be reduced by 10 percent if they fail to offer education to disadvantaged students at the legally regulated level.

Interior ministry state secretary Bence Retvari said during the debate of the law that sanctions against those schools that failed to comply had not been “sufficiently resolute”, as also pointed out by the European Union.
