The Minister of education of Russia Olga Vasilyeva, the radio station “Moscow speaking” said that overly lush prom, for which parents have to take loans, is insane and unacceptable practice with which the Agency will mercilessly fight.
Vasiliev also suggested not to turn the celebration of the last call in banquets, reminiscent of the wedding. In her opinion, sufficient to limit a solemn ruler.
According to the Minister, this year each school will decide for itself the question of how to spend the last call, but most of the schools intend to do so “very modest”.
The first Deputy Chairman of state Duma Committee on education Oleg Smolin, in turn, noted that the discharge should not turn into vanity fair, but all depends on the capabilities of the parents. “If in the class the vast majority of people affluent and want some sort of special celebration — it is their right. But I personally believe that it is best if prom will be held in the school”, — said the Deputy of the National news service (NSN).
On 24 may, the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov said that prom is no need to hold in the walls of the schools. He forbade the Republican schools to raise money for this holiday. “Parents can organize, at its discretion, prom in various cafes and restaurants. Such places to celebrate the completion of school study in the Republic abound,” — said Kadyrov.
