Opposition Supports and Collects Signatures for Raising Age Limit of Compulsory Education to 18 Years

Opposition Supports and Collects Signatures for Raising Age Limit of Compulsory Education to 18 Years
The Orbán-government deliberately destroys the future of young people by keeping them away from usable knowledge. The lives of hundreds of thousands of youngsters have been derailed so far. Since 2011, they have been pushed out of education at the age of 16 as a result of a bad and heartless decision. Most of them do not even have primary education, so they are left with no chance of obtaining a profession.
Due to the destructive behaviour of Fidesz, in terms of education, we are lagging behind Europe and the world to a never before seen degree. Unfortunately, the number of non-graduates and those without a profession is steadily increasing in Hungary, while in other EU countries the number of young people without qualifications is decreasing.
 
For this reason, we have been protesting from the outset about the ill-considered lowering of the age limit of compulsory education, and we are now supporting the signature collection Initiative of the We Belong Here Association to reinstate compulsory schooling until the age of 18.
 
We need to provide competitive knowledge so that schools do not raise children without a future. That is why we stand by all those who, in the interest of a better and fairer society and concerned about the future of their children, demand the raise of the age limit of compulsory schooling back to 18 years.
We will fight side by side until modern education laws are in place in Hungary that take into account the future of our children, the interests of the individual and those of the community!
