The Ministry of Education has distributed to schools methodological materials and requirements for organizing compulsory optional classes for grades 2–9 “Juvenile justice: our key to a healthy society.” Lessons are scheduled to begin on September 1; until that time, schools will have time to integrate them into the curriculum.
Classes will be held every Friday before the main lessons. As noted in the order, their visit will be free, but the pass will be punished the same way as any other lesson. In addition, truants will be forced to catch up on their own, using methodical materials, and then take a short test.
Some teachers have already published on the net some of the materials sent — in particular, in the classes it is recommended to hang a poster, which depicts two young people. One of them named Mark — in a solid suit, against the background of a skyscraper, in dark glasses. The second, by the name of Ivan, is unshaven, dirty, stands in a torn working overalls at the machine at the factory, behind him there are flames and soot.
The first was a replica attributed: “I supported juvenile justice and did not let my parents ruin my life by making a choice for me. Now I am an insurance agent, drive an expensive car, have dinner in the best restaurants and can enjoy life every day in all its manifestations. ”
The second, Ivan, was given the following words: “I opposed juvenile justice and my parents insisted that I learn how to work. It turned out to be a non-prestigious profession and I found myself at the very bottom of society. I wish I had become an insurance agent. ”
It is also recommended that the materials sent out specifically indicate to children that with the advent of juvenile justice, they will be able to forget about corporal punishment (“One call to the inspector and the nightmare will end forever,” says one of the posters) and unnecessary restrictions from parents.
