STRASBOURG, September 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Lithuania continues to experience a shortage of text-books on the languages of national minorities, specifically, in Russian, says a report, published on Tuesday, of the Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment, which is the key expert authority of the Council of Europe.
“The Lithuanian authorities should ensure the supply of text-books in the languages of national minorities on all stages of education,” the report said. The experts cited as an example the absence of text-books on history in the Russian language for the eighth form. The committee stressed that the quality of education both in ordinary schools and in the schools with tuition on the languages of national minorities should be equal.
Experts of the oldest political organisation in Europe believe, however, that the situation with education in the languages of national minorities improved in Lithuania over the past few years.
