Dialogue can lead to prevention of radicalism and violent extremism

Communication within the community plays an important role in prevention of radicalism and violent extremism, since lack of adequate communication generates fear, which further creates space for manipulation and can lead to conflict, as it was concluded today, at the second public debate ‘Dialogue in the community – prevention of radicalization and violent extremism‘ organized by the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) in Bar.

Minister of education to dismiss all school directors whose work education inspection has determined as illegal

Centre for Civic Education (CCE) has been pointing for years to deficiencies of a legal provision by which the Minister of Education appoints and dismisses directors of educational institutions. Such provision creates enormous and unjustified space for discretionary decision-making, and this is visible both through the appointment process and through the “protection” of those directors for whom the Educational Inspection has stated that they have not been working according the law.

Following up the text publicized on the Antenna M portal ‘Director of the school ‘Dusan Korac’ accuses of misconducting, she has no comment, the Ministry is waiting for a plea’, the CCE reminds that we submitted an initiative to the Minister of Education for the dismissal of one school director a year ago, but also published that the Education Inspection submitted nine requests for the dismissal of directors of primary and secondary school for the period of 2016 and 2017. Without any sustainable argument, the Minister ignored our initiative and the requirements of the Education Inspection. It is a matter of additional concern that some of the directors in whose work the Education Inspection several times declared irregularities and proposed their dismissal were re-elected to these functions instead of being dismissed. »
