Experience from one year ago

Minister said. – Today, returning to full-time education is no longer a problem – said the head of MEiN. He added that it is an important part of the preparations for the new school year 2021.

He stressed that “these are recommendations and guidelines that will be implemented by school principals and teachers to the extent possible in individual educational institutions.” – These are not generally applicable legal provisions that would bind them to be fully applicable everywhere regardless of the circumstances, but our recommendations – The minister confirmed.

The minister indicated.
– The recommendations are to do this to the extent that it avoids the risk of contracting the coronavirus, and then we assume that physical education should be held in the open air, in the open air, for as long as possible, because then the probability of contracting the coronavirus is reduced. . It all depends on weather conditions, sporting opportunities, and how individual schools are prepared for it Kazarnik explained.
Przemyslav kazarnk On Friday, during the conference, he confirmed the information that President Andrei Duda convened the Cabinet. – I think the President will want to know directly from the Minister of Education and Science the state of preparation for the new school year, and perhaps the school year as well. – confirmed.
– The President has such constitutional powers to convene the Cabinet, which does not have the powers of the Cabinet, but primarily has informational functions. The head of state can always get acquainted with all the details regarding any matter of importance to the Polish state.

The Cabinet is formed by a government headed by the President of the Republic. Only the president decides to convene the council. Positions presented to the Cabinet are not legally binding. The council meets when the president considers a particular issue to be of “particular importance.”
