Any illegal act in schools unacceptable – minister

Baku: The Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan has clarified the reports on collecting money from schools under the guise of the European Games to be held in Baku.

Education Minister Mikayil Jabbarov said that regardless of the pretext, any illegal act in schools, educational institutions is unacceptable.

He said that the information is sometimes distributed without being checking with relevant bodies, noting that the Education Ministry and relevant law enforcement agencies is fully investigating and controlling any appeal about illegal acts.

“We read media reports on such cases. Unfortunately, “hotline” of the ministry has not received any appeal. However, according to media such a case was supposedly observed in one of the villages of Khachmaz district. The head of the district education department was invited to internal control department of the ministry in this regard and the investigation was carried out. The citizens shouldn’t hide such cases and fulfill their civic duty,” the minister added.
