That part of Article 21, which deals with the language of instruction, in a new law reads as follows: "The implementation of the right of people to choose municipal language, which is used in the educational process is ensured through the establishment of institutions of higher education of Belarusian and Russian groups (flows) through the procedure and on criteria established by the Government Republic of Belarus . "
Vladimir Zdanowicz sees the situation:
"If you look, the Russian language and becomes smaller. More increasingly used British. This is because the computer and other equipment is based on the British language.
As for the Belarusian language, with this bill, in Article 21, we have made some steps in order to secure its application. But compel youth to teach physics or chemistry on whiteRussian language we can not. This would lead to the fact that the state of the Belarusian language would be even worse than it is at the moment. "
Oleg Trusov — Associate Professor, Ph.D., chairman of the Belarusian Language Society, more than 20 years teaching students only in Belarusian:
"And never the language problems with the students I had not. And all these stories about physics, which is unrealistic Tipo teach Belarusian, is a fairy tale about a grayish bull. And that’s about reverence for language testing shows today — more than 12 thousand students elected Belarusian language and not Russian.
We did not once addressed the House of Representatives Commission with a proposal to consolidate the law "On Higher Education" position of the Belarusian language. I must say that the Minister Radzkou year earlier ordered to throw out a study of the Belarusian language of all universities. Only after, we addressed Alexander Lukashenko collected several 10’s of thousands of signatures week reversing reversing returned Belarusian language for a year in all institutions. "
New rules of the Belarusian language acquire the status of law
Vladimir Zdanowicz said that for the fall session of its Commission wishes to submit a bill on the new rules of the Belarusian punctuation and spelling. He mentioned that in 1959, these rules have not changed. A different media use different rules:
"Someone wrote" parliament ", someone -" Parliament ", and someone -" parliament. "Someone wrote" classes "instead of" classes. "" Radio Liberty "it knows."
Those rules, said the chairman of the commission, had become of mandatory for all. But punishment for their violation was not foreseen:
"Since the law passed this line:" In case of violation of the accepted rules. And who take these rules? Because at the moment to take all in the form of law. And the law is required to perform. "
