But in each case the procedure was observed, and everything was verified by the Ministry and the Prosecutor's Office. This year, I can report after September 10," Tabachnyk said.
The minister noted that under the law, several schools can be combined in educational districts with basic institution. According to him, it will optimize the expenses on secondary education and create learning centers with proper material and technical basis.
