This will cause such torment for the children, and for the parents, and for the teachers that it will take five years to shake the school. Probably, Mr. Bastrykin knows well what torture is, but as far as I know, most children, parents and teachers over the past 15 years have become accustomed to the form of the exam, “he said.
