Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine sent a letter to all regional departments of education and educational institutions of the country. In this message, the requirement is put forward for teaching staff and other personnel of educational establishments to hold classes and to communicate only in the Ukrainian language.
The letter says that during working hours, all employees of educational institutions are obliged to speak the state language. In schools where learning takes place in the language of national minorities, Ukrainian must be used in parallel.
MOES stresses that educational institutions’ managers must pay attention to the level of knowledge of the Ukrainian language of their employees. If it is necessary they must provide the conditions for its improvement.
Also, the representatives of Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine recommend the educational establishments to attract pupils and students to a variety of activities that allow them to improve the knowledge of the Ukrainian language.
