The drama of Shchetinin’s school has been going on for almost half of a century. Since 1972: Kizlyar, Yasnye Zori, Zybkovo, Azovskaya. Tecos — 2020.
Every time Shchetinin creates a school from scratch, makes children happy and educated, during this time the way of school comes into conflict with the system, the system burns the school down.
Generations of officials are changing, but hatred of Shchetinin is reproduced in every generation of bosses, accusations and claims are repeated with accuracy to the wording of acts of inspections and protocols that record «offenses».
Mikhail Petrovich Shchetinin is the author of a new pedagogical methodology for the personal and patriotic development of children and adolescents. The program of Shchetinin’s school is based on the free choice of the type of activity using work skills, sports training and the development of creative abilities. The main part of the innovative program is the pedagogy of cooperation with immersion in different subjects and the unification of several special schools into one.
In pedagogy, the theory of mass distribution of copyright innovations does not work. The system can adapt the author’s method, simplifying it to the level of bureaucratic formulation. And if it fails to squeeze the author into the yoke of approved circulars, the system gets angry and takes its revenge.
In 2019, the Shchetinin school in Tekos was closed in the very end. Mikhail Petrovich Shchetinin himself died on November 10, 2019 at the age of 75.
How this happens — in the material of Vera Pisarenko, who writes the chronicle of this story.
School of Schetinin: punished and sealed
In 1999, the Shchetinin school was recognized by UNESCO as one of the best pedagogical systems in the world. Teachers came here for training not only from the countries of the former USSR, but also from France and Germany. They came from all over the world to learn from the experience of the delegation — from the USA, Canada, Great Britain, Spain, Japan, China and other countries. Today, September 14, 2019, not only are there no visitors or trainees at the school, there are no students themselves, not a single child, activity is suspended by a departmental order, and all premises are sealed by bailiffs.
Since the beginning of 2019, a cascade of planned and unscheduled inspections has hit Shchetinin’s school.
From mid-April to May 21, 2019, a special “test with partiality” was held at the school, which was conducted by 32 employees from different departments.
On the third day of the inspection, a month before the report of the inspection results was drawn up, a protocol on an administrative offense had already been drawn up.
On May 20, the school received an order to eliminate 39 violations by July 22, 2019. But before the expiration of the time-limit set by the authorities, a court session was held, held without a representative of the school, and a decision was made to suspend the activities of the educational organization for 90 days.
And on September 10, the second court was held to consider the appeal, and, despite the evidence presented by the school that the violations were eliminated, the school continues to be punished by the Ministry of Education of the Krasnodar Territory with a suspension of activities for 3 months for “gross” violations of license requirements.
There are no complaints about the educational process!
Representatives of the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory, together with the FSB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Sanitary and Epidemiological Supervision, Federal state fire control, in the spring of 2019 arrived at the boarding school for complex personality formation, as the Shchetinin school is officially called, and arranged what is more precisely called not a routine check, but «a test with passion” or, as it is characterized in the Lyceum itself, a test of strength.
32 inspectors instead of legal 20 demanded that all the attention of the administration, teachers, educators be focused on them during the hottest period of the end of the school year and preparation for the exam. In addition to checking educational documentation and attending classes, the experts actually searched the workplaces of teachers and school buildings, chaotically chasing the Lyceum employees for one or another piece of paper. The administration of the Lyceum simultaneously had to work with representatives of various inspection services, answer their questions and requirements.
On the third day of the inspection, a month before its completion, contrary to the law, the inspectors draw up a protocol on an administrative offense, which should be drawn up not only after the completion of the inspection, but also after the expiration of the period for correcting violations and only if the violations are not eliminated. Moreover, it is still unknown who compiled it and if he had the authority to do so.
By May 20, the inspectors found 39 violations, but the main reason for the suspension of activities was the Lyceum’s lack of documents on registration of the ownership of the Russian Federation to two educational buildings, «Sura» and «Omega», and the Lyceum’s lack of State Fire Inspection and sanitary-epidemiological conclusions on four buildings — «Stepnoy», «Kedrovy», «Krasniy» and «Olha».
A number of media outlets loudly began to call the Lyceum dangerous for the lives of children, relying on a quote taken out of context from a court ruling: “the educational organization does not have safe learning conditions, education of students, their content in accordance with established norms that ensure the life and health of students and employees”. For those who are not aware of what is happening, the situation looks like a blatant disgrace — children are in danger, and therefore the school must be urgently closed!
What’s the matter?
Today the Lyceum for licensed educational activities has four educational and residential buildings (Svyatogor, Solnechny, Sura and Omega), two administrative buildings and a boiler room. All these buildings are located on a plot of land donated by the Lyceum team to the state, along with all buildings equipped with a modern fire safety and alarm system, in which the requirements of all instances are met (which is confirmed by the conclusions of both the State Fire Inspection and Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare). These buildings, according to the conclusions of the relevant authorities, are completely ready to provide 108 students with conditions for living and receiving education.
To conduct classes in the Lyceum, other four buildings were used under a free lease agreement, which were independently built by lyceum students and the Lyceum team on a neighboring plot of land with a category of use “individual housing construction”. These are the same corps “Stepnoy”, “Kedrovy”, “Krasniy” and “Olha” indicated in the court ruling. All of them are also equipped with everything necessary in accordance with the requirements of the legislation, including a modern fire safety and alarm system, and they have the conclusions of the State Fire Inspection and sanitary and epidemiological conclusions issued for these individual residential buildings.
But to conduct educational activities in them, it is required that these buildings be transferred to the status of non-residential, which is impossible without changing the status of the land. And in order for the conclusions of the State Fire Supervision Service and the sanitary and epidemiological conclusions required by the ministry to be issued, you must first change the status of the land, then the status of buildings, and only then get new conclusions.
The lyceum, after conducting an inspection by the ministry and receiving an act with a list of violations, made a decision to abandon the use of the “Stepnoy”, “Kedrovy”, “Krasniy” and “Olha” buildings until proper registration. Indeed, at the disposal of the Lyceum there are enough buildings that meet all the requirements to accommodate 108 students and their training:
— the main educational and residential building «Svyatogor» with an area of 1478.6 sq. m with the ability to train 108 students there, and accommodate 69 students in accordance with all the norms and requirements of the authorities (this building contains a dining room, an equipped gym, a hall for choreography classes, classrooms and living rooms);
— «Sura» building with an area of 424 sq. m with the ability to accommodate 16 students;
— «Omega» building with an area of 315.2 sq. m with the ability to accommodate 23 students.
And the lack of documents on the registration of property rights of the Russian Federation in the Sura and Omega buildings cannot be grounds for punishing the Lyceum for the simple reason that, according to the current civil legislation and the Charter of the Lyceum, the proper registration of these buildings is not at all under the jurisdiction of the Lyceum, but the owner — that is, the Russian Federation represented by the Ministry of Education and the Federal Agency for State Property Management. The Lyceum simply does not have the authority to design the buildings donated to the state. The lack of title documents is not the fault of the Lyceum.
In addition, the educational buildings «Sura» and «Omega» were built more than 15 years ago, and licensing of the Lyceum was repeatedly carried out by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Krasnodar Territory in the absence of registration of the RF ownership of these buildings.
Let’s now look at the chronology of events.
Chronicle of a massive check
SINCE 1994: The school under the leadership of Academician Mikhail Petrovich Shchetinin has been working for 25 years in the village of Tekos, Krasnodar Territory, undergoing scheduled and unscheduled inspections of all kinds of authorities and departments: the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory, the State Administration of Veterinary Medicine Krasnodar Territory, Federal Service for Supervision of Transport, Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision, Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare, FSB, Ministry of Internal Affairs, prosecutor’s office, fire inspection, Ministry of Emergency Situations. And all 25 years the Lyceum has been successfully working.
FROM MARCH 4 TO APRIL 2, 2019: The Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation conducts a scheduled audit of financial and economic activities and the use of the property complex at the Lyceum. On March 18, members of the commission arrive at the Lyceum, and the check suddenly becomes on-site.
MARCH 20, 2019: Representatives of the FSB come to the Lyceum with specialists from the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory, specialists from the Department of Internal Affairs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Gelendzhik, specialists from the Department of District Police Officers for Minors and the Prosecutor’s Office of the Krasnodar Territory.
FROM 5 APRIL TO 7 MAY 2019: Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision arrives at the Lyceum with a scheduled inspection.
APRIL 17, 2019: based on the order of the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory, a comprehensive audit of educational activities for compliance with the legislation of the Russian Federation in the field of education was started at the Lyceum with the involvement of a large number of teachers from various educational institutions of the region. Representatives of the FSB, State Fire Supervision Service and Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare arrived again. The order provided that from April 17 to May 21 on the territory of the Lyceum, 20 inspectors should carry out an inspection. Meanwhile, on April 17, the day the check began, 32 people arrived at the Lyceum.
APRIL 19, 2019: Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare of Gelendzhik checks the Lyceum and, as a result of this check, assigns a fine to the Lyceum on April 25, and later — on June 11 — the Lyceum receives another fine under the same article from the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare of the Krasnodar Territory. For one and the same Lyceum he is fined twice.
On the same day, April 19, on the third day of the inspection, which was supposed to last until May 21, the Ministry of Education of the Krasnodar Territory draws up a protocol on an administrative offense, although such a protocol, according to the law, should be drawn up only if the organization does not fulfill the instructions within the prescribed period issued to her after the completion of the check. Please note — there is still 32 days before the check is complete. The protocol was drawn up several months earlier than the deadline stipulated by the laws.
APRIL 22, 2019: The lawyer of the Lyceum received the stitching of protocols with a cover letter from the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory. At the same time, the stitching of protocols with a covering letter presented to the Lyceum does not indicate the essence of the administrative offense and does not mention the article establishing responsibility for the offense. The sanction was also not indicated in the protocols. One of the pages of the protocol just contains unfinished text. At the same time, the person who drew up the protocol and his powers are not indicated. In such circumstances, as was later reported in the complaint to the Krasnodar court, the protocol cannot be considered handed over to the person prosecuted and should have been returned to the authority that drew it up.
MAY 20, 2019: The Lyceum received an inspection report dated 05.20.2019, which indicates 39 violations and the deadline for submitting a report on the execution of orders is July 22, 2019. That is, violations must be corrected in 2 months. Although for similar cases, usually up to 6 months are allocated. The lyceum instantly draws up a schedule for the elimination of violations and starts work on fulfilling all the requirements of the inspection bodies. A decision is made to abandon the use of the “Stepnoy”, “Kedrovy”, “Krasniy” and “Olha” buildings for conducting training sessions until proper registration.
JUNE 5, 2019: The State Fire Inspectorate issues a fine.
JUNE 26, 2019: The Lyceum, in order to fulfill the requirements for the Sura and Omega buildings as soon as possible, applies to the Arbitration Court of the Krasnodar Territory with a claim for recognition of the ownership of the Russian Federation. On June 27, a judge of the Arbitration Court appoints a hearing to consider the claim for July 29, 2019.
JULY 4, 2019: The Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory, without waiting for the expiration of the term set by the Lyceum in its own prescription for correcting violations, appeals to the Gelendzhik City Court with a protocol on an administrative offense dated April 19, 2019. On the same day, the date of the judicial meeting on 19 July. But a copy of the claim was not sent to the Lyceum, and the Lyceum was not promptly notified of the planned court session. The summons for the court session came to the Lyceum only on July 18, 2019 by the Russian Post, the day before the session.
JULY 18, 2019: The Lyceum receives a summons for the hearing scheduled for July 19. The date of sending the summons by Russian Post is July 12, 2019 (eight days after the appointment of the date of the court session). The representative of the Lyceum immediately contacts the lawyer and submits a petition to the court to postpone the hearing in connection with the employment of the lawyer. The assistant judge notifies the representative that the case will be postponed and the Lyceum and the lawyer will be notified of the new date. In the petition, the Lyceum informed the court that he had received a protocol drawn up in gross violation of the requirements of the law, without indicating the essence of the offense and without mentioning the article and the sanction imposed by the protocol.
JULY 19, 2019: The lawyer of the Lyceum arrives at the trial of the Lyceum before the magistrate, presents, as appropriate, the corresponding warrant and power of attorney. According to the law, these documents are included in the case materials.
In the course of the initial examination of the case by the magistrate, the lawyer of the Lyceum presented to the Court the stitching protocols that were sent to the Lyceum. The very protocols that were drawn up without indicating the essence of the offense, without mentioning the article that establishes responsibility for the offense, without indicating the sanction.
The Gelendzhik City Court, not taking into account the facts presented in the petition, refuses the Lyceum to postpone the trial, which the Lyceum learns about only on July 23, when the court’s decision is sent to the lawyer’s e-mail. The court ruling states that the Lyceum did not provide evidence of the conclusion of an agreement with a lawyer, despite the fact that, firstly, no contract with a lawyer is required by law, and, secondly, when the case was considered by a magistrate at that the same day — July 19, the same lawyer arrived for consideration, presenting an appropriate order and power of attorney, which, according to the law, must be available in the case file and are sufficient evidence of an agreement with the lawyer.
The judge rejects the petition and three days before the expiry of the deadline for eliminating violations, established by the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory, conducts a hearing in the Gelendzhik Court. At the hearing, the Ministry insists on a harsh measure — the suspension of the activities of the Lyceum, and the court makes just such a decision.
Thus, the court ruling was issued without notifying the Lyceum of what it was accused of, in accordance with which article of the Administrative Code the administrative protocol was drawn up, and without giving the Lyceum the opportunity to express its position and submit arguments to refute the arguments of the administrative protocol.
Until the very moment the decision was received (until July 23, 2019), neither the Lyceum employees nor the Lyceum’s lawyer knew what exactly the violation, which was the subject of administrative proceedings, was. At the same time, the decision itself partially coincides with the protocol received by the Lyceum, but still contains an additional 22 lines of imputed violations, which the Lyceum was not notified of!
JULY 22, 2019: as prescribed, a representative of the Lyceum, not suspecting anything about the already past court session, travels to the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory and reports on the elimination of 30 violations. The implementation of measures to eliminate the remaining nine violations required a longer period, since they relate to the property complex.
JULY 23, 2019: the lawyer of the Lyceum receives a decision of the Gelendzhik City Court dated July 19, 2019, in which the Lyceum was found guilty of committing an administrative offense and sentenced to administrative suspension of activities for a period of 90 days. On the same day, the representative of the Lyceum finally received this resolution.
JULY 26, 2019: An unscheduled check of the Ministry of Education of the Krasnodar Territory arrives at the Lyceum, the purpose of which is to check how the violations have been corrected. The commission of the ministry recognized 33 of 39 violations as corrected.
JULY 29, 2019: The Lyceum’s claim is considered in the Arbitration Court of the Krasnodar Territory, and the Lyceum requests the appointment of a judicial construction and technical examination in the case. The court points out that the Lyceum does not have independent rights to file such claims and demand the registration of buildings in the interests of the Russian Federation, but the petition satisfies and asks the experts the questions of the Lyceum on assessing the technical characteristics of all buildings of the Lyceum, expert assessment of the conformity of buildings to all construction, urban planning, sanitary and epidemiological, firefighters norms and rules, rules of land use and development. And, most importantly, the Lyceum asks the court to appoint an examination — do the disputed objects pose a threat to the life and health of children, do they violate the rights and legitimate interests of others? The court instructs the experts to carry out the examination by September 16, 2019. By September 7, 2019, the examination has been completed, and the experts draw up its results.
JULY 31, 2019: The lawyer of the Lyceum sends a complaint to the Krasnodar Regional Court against the aforementioned decision of the Gelendzhik City Court. In the complaint, the lawyer substantiates that the violations of licensing requirements imputed to the Lyceum have no place, since all the shortcomings listed in the inspection report existed at the time of licensing, and the license was issued taking into account that such shortcomings do not affect the educational process, its quality and must be eliminated on a routine basis as appropriate funding becomes available.
AUGUST 6, 2019: The lawyer of the Lyceum sends to the Krasnodar Regional Court an addendum to the complaint with eight arguments in support of the complete cancellation of the decision and copies of documents confirming the absence of grounds for bringing the Lyceum to justice. The same documents were sent to the Ministry of Education of the Krasnodar Territory.
AUGUST 7, 2019: The Lyceum receives an order from the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation, according to which the Lyceum must suspend its activities for a period of three months and “ensure the transfer of students of the Boarding School to other educational organizations, taking into account the consent of the parents (legal representatives) by August 29, 2019”. The above order is based on the decision of the Gelendzhik City Court of the Krasnodar Territory dated 07.19.2019, which did not come into legal force, since it was appealed by the Lyceum in the prescribed manner.
AUGUST 15, 2019: The judge of the Krasnodar Regional Court takes the case materials to study, and a court session is scheduled for September 10.
AUGUST 17, 2019: The Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory issues a decree on the suspension of the license for educational activities issued by the Lyceum on March 10, 2015. The suspension period is from August 30 to November 27, 2019.
26-29 AUGUST 2019: Representatives of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory work in the Lyceum. The purpose of their visit is to monitor the execution of the order of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation to ensure the transfer of children to other educational organizations.
AUGUST 29, 2019: Bailiffs arrive at the Lyceum and seal the Lyceum. The Lyceum applies to the court with a statement of claim declaring the actions of the bailiff-executor illegal on the basis that the decision of the Gelendzhik court has been appealed legally and is not entered into legal force.
AUGUST 30, 2019: The judge, who previously made a decision to suspend the activities of the Lyceum, leaves the statement of claim declaring the actions of the bailiff unlawful.
1-2 SEPTEMBER 2019: The Lyceum is sealed, there are no students. The Ministry requires the Lyceum to ensure the transfer of children to other educational institutions. Some parents and children refuse to do this and are awaiting trial on September 10, 2019. The directors of the schools to which the children were transferred call the Lyceum and ask to give them documents, but the documents are sealed and the Lyceum cannot issue them.
SEPTEMBER 3, 2019: Bailiffs come to the Lyceum to enable the Lyceum to issue documents for children to transfer them to other educational institutions. And again they seal the Lyceum.
SEPTEMBER 10, 2019: The Krasnodar Regional Court is considering the Lyceum’s appeal against the decision of the Gelendzhik Court. The lyceum presents to the court evidence that the violations have been eliminated, but the court leaves the decision of the previous court unchanged.
Lyceum lawyer Alexander Mamzhiev comments:
“The decision of the first instance court is not based on the law and was made without examining the factual circumstances of the case. The content of the protocol drawn up by the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory was simply rewritten into the reasoning part of the court decision. The appellate instance has also withdrawn from the investigation of the factual circumstances. Her ruling is in the nature of a bureaucratic formal reply, since on none of the Lyceum’s arguments did the court comment on why such an argument was rejected, which violates the fundamental principles of a judicial act”.
SEPTEMBER 12, 2019: The Lyceum submits a petition to the Gelendzhik court for the early termination of the administrative suspension of activities due to the fact that the circumstances that served as the basis have been fully eliminated. A number of questions and assumptions arise.
— Why, in previous years, representatives of state bodies, licensing the Lyceum and conducting regular inspections, did not consider the same conditions dangerous and require immediate compliance with the requirements, and now insist on the most stringent measures?
— Why was the Lyceum not notified in a timely manner, as required by law, before the court session, what exactly is he accused of and in accordance with which article of the Administrative Code the administrative protocol was drawn up?
— Why did the authorities demand that the violations be eliminated before July 22, and the trial on the violation case took place on July 19 — three days before the deadline for eliminating violations expired?
— Why the court and the authorities do not take into account the fact that the Lyceum does not have the authority to formalize the rights of the Russian Federation to the Lyceum buildings, but still does everything possible to obtain registration documents? And also the fact that these objects have passed all the necessary expert assessments and are recognized as completely ready for use for their intended purpose, and the matter is only up to the arbitration court?
— Why, instead of assisting the Lyceum in fulfilling all the requirements of the legislation, are there obstacles in fulfilling their own requirements?
These issues, as well as the organization of a massive inspection with the involvement of all relevant departments, raises the assumption that a strict order is being implemented to create conditions for the termination of the school in Tecos.
Who gave such an order and why the true reason and motives of the comprehensive attack on Shchetinin’s project are not revealed openly?
Let’s continue our research.
What violations became the formal basis for the suspension of the lyceum’s activities? How fair are these actions?
The Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory at the trial on July 19, 2019 insisted on suspending the activities of the Lyceum on the following grounds:
1. The Lyceum does not have title documents for two buildings «Sura» and «Omega».
But bringing the Lyceum to responsibility for the lack of registration of the property right of the Russian Federation to these buildings is illegal and unreasonable, since the person obliged to do this is the Federal Agency for State Property Management.
2. Lack of conclusions of the State Fire Inspection and Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare for four buildings — «Stepnoy», «Kedrovy», «Krasniy» and «Olha».
But these buildings were taken out of use by the Lyceum after the Ministry carried out an inspection and indicated this violation. And until these buildings are properly designed, they will not be used, which the government agencies will be able, if they wish, to control with the help of a new video surveillance system installed in the Lyceum.
3. Premises for the subjects: «Chemistry», «Physics», «Physical Education», «Fundamentals of Life Safety» are not fully equipped.
These violations were eliminated by the Lyceum in full, and documents confirming this were submitted to the state bodies.
4. The choreography teacher does not have a corresponding diploma, and one history teacher does not have documents confirming the passage of the current advanced training courses in the field of training.
These violations have also been eliminated in full: the history teacher was fired, and the choreography teacher, who has long been an honored artist of the Republic of Ingushetia, completed the necessary training over the summer and has the right to teach choreography since August 24.
5. The Lyceum has an incomplete amount of educational literature on subjects of basic general education — from 5 to 10 copies with a number of students of 106 people and there are no educational publications on the subjects: «Music», «Fine Arts», «Physical Education», «Astronomy» and «Technology».
These violations do not refer to gross violations of license requirements and cannot serve as grounds for suspension of activities. But they have been eliminated in full, about which the Lyceum notified the state bodies and submitted all supporting documents.
That is, there were no real facts for bringing the Lyceum to justice within the framework of the protocol drawn up by the Ministry of Education by the time of the trial. That the lawyer justified in addition to the complaint of the Lyceum against the decision of the Gelendzhik court.
«Formally, such a basis was only the lack of legal registration for two educational buildings, but taking into account the fact that these buildings actually fully meet all the requirements, and the obligation to register the rights to them lies not with the Lyceum, but with the authorized state bodies, this basis also not applicable in the present case!» — indicated in the addendum to the complaint.
In total, as we remember, 39 violations were indicated in the order based on the results of the examination of the Lyceum by the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Krasnodar Territory. At the same time, the reviewers did not have any complaints about the educational process and its quality. By the deadline indicated by the inspectors on July 22, 2019, the Lyceum had corrected 30 violations, by July 26, at the time of checking the elimination of violations by the Ministry, 33 violations had been corrected, and by September 4, only the item related to the formal legalization of buildings remained.
The lyceum, by all its actions in the current situation and previously, has repeatedly demonstrated its readiness to immediately eliminate any shortcomings and conduct its activities in compliance with all the requirements of the legislation. Although this is not easy, because the experimental scientific activity of the Lyceum goes far ahead of our legislation in the field of education.
The law requires children to have holidays. They are in the Lyceum. Some of the children go home, some stay. At this time, there is a vacation school. Saturated active time for the formation of the management asset of the Lyceum. The kids love it. After all, for them in the Lyceum is not just study, but a real life, which they themselves manage, which they themselves create.
The law requires each child to read a textbook, and the children in the Lyceum use the immersion system and transfer knowledge to each other in a different way — a working group of students first works with many textbooks and books, including scientific publications, and prepares their own development, their own textbook. Then this group transfers knowledge to everyone else through dialogue and practice. These children do not need 108 identical chemistry textbooks in the boarding school — they work with dozens of different textbooks and books on this discipline.
But nevertheless, the Lyceum has already purchased everything that the inspectors demanded. It is more important for the lyceum to continue its work than to prove that they do not need much of what other schools use, and at the same time they do not violate the rights of children and do not lose the quality of education, but, on the contrary, improve it, which is confirmed by independent examinations. True, the auditors do not take them into account.
