Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov. 15 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
The Georgian Labor Party has accused the government of violating children's rights and called for the cancellation of exams in subjects that are not taught in public schools.
The Labor Party calls for the cancellation of exams in subjects that are not taught to children, the party's secretary general, Soso Shatberashvili, told Trend today.
"We stand for examinations only in subjects that are taught at schools," he said.
Shatberashvili added that his party is sending a special message about the violation of children's rights in Georgia to the U.N. Committee on Children's Rights.
Groups of twelfth graders held rallies in Georgia last week, calling for the cancellation of the exams. The principals of eight schools in Tbilisi were dismissed due to the rallies.
