The minister reminds students to come to school

Minister Vedran Mornar this morning reiterated in the tour of two Zagreb schools the statement that children are in the schools and no one has the right to invite parents to not send them to school. He said his statement would not be unjustified hours wrongly interpreted because he was thinking of those schools where he was not sure if he would work or not.

"The position of the ministries is clear - the students must be in school. Students who have not been to school today will not get unjustified hours, but if one of the following weeks shows that a school is working, everyone who does not come will receive an unjustified watch, "Mornar said, repeating that the union's call to parents not sending children to school was inadequate .
