Those over 360 pupils of the Roman-Catholic High School in Targu Mures will study at the “Bolyai Farkas” High School after the suspension of its activity, which stirred a diplomatic row between Budapest and Bucharest.
Parents and teachers agreed to this solution.
The head of the Mures County School Inspectorate, Ioan Macarie, stated that it’s the most correct decision that could have been taken in this case.
The inspector said the pupils will study in the same building as so far, only that it will be under the authority of <Bolyai Farkas> High School. “It’s the best decision that could have been taken. The parents and teachers have agreed to that,” Macarie said.
2,500 people took to the street several days ago, to protest against the legal situation of the school. The court ruled on June that the school couldn’t legally function anymore for it haven’t had the Education Ministry’s bills.
Hungary has withdrawn the support for Romania’s accession to the OECD, one of the main objectives of Bucharest’s foreign policy, early this week in retort to the suspension of the setting up of a Catholic high school in Targu Mures.
Hungary argued that Romania’s decision is an attack “against the Catholic Church, against the Hungarian minority, against the children and families affected,” as Magyar Levente, State Secretary with the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, put it.
In June a court of law has cancelled the setting up of the Catholic High School in Târgu Mureş. A DNA file has been opened on this issue.
