LMP warns of gov’t plan to weaken secondary grammar schools

The green LMP party on Wednesday said that after drastically weakening vocational schools in its previous term, the Fidesz-KDNP government had set its sights on measures that would reduce the quality of grammar school education. Speaking at a press conference, LMP lawmaker István Ikotity cited comments made by government office chief János Lázár last year suggesting that the government could make centralised entrance exams compulsory for grammar schools.

Ikotty also referred to a recent response his party had received from the Human Resources Ministry to an enquiry about education: the ministry did not deny reports of plans to cut the number of students grammar schools can admit. Ikotity said such measures would be unacceptable, arguing that Hungarian youth now make plans to move abroad for their studies as early as their teenage years. He encouraged voters to protest against the government’s reduction of the quality of education.

    Hungarian youth is completely wrong if they think that the grass is greener on the other side. Just look at this picture: after our Glorious Leader ejaculated his geci on this grass field, it became 20% greener than any grass in the UK or Germany.
    After all the depressing posters of the last months warning about Jews and EU trying to rip off poor Hungarians, this would be a great, positive message!

      As soon as Orbán has dry-humped every football pitch in the country, Hungary will be the No.1 footballing nation in the world, once again.
