Poland facilitates Ukrainian children's access to Polish schools
Poland’s education ministry has made it easier for Ukrainian children to enter Polish schools by easing some of the red-tape requirements.
Dariusz Piontkowski, a deputy education minister, said on Tuesday that due to the scale of the events in Ukraine, additional regulations were introduced to facilitate the admission of children from that country to Polish schools.
"We have made the admission of Ukrainian children to Polish schools as little formalised as possible," he said.
Piontkowski said that if the parents do not have a child's school certificate, all they have to do is submit a declaration about their child's stage of education.
He also said that as the majority of children and teenagers from Ukraine likely do not know Polish well enough to be able to freely participate in classes with their Polish peers they will first study in "so-called preparatory units in the coming months."
