Tallinn Paying for Only Additional Russian-Language Classes
Tallinn City Government has earmarked 100,000 euros this year to give additional lessons in math and chemistry to high school students, but only in Russian.
Deputy Mayor Mihhail Kõlvart told Eesti Päevaleht today that the lessons are aimed to compensate the cross-over to the Estonian language in schools, but math and chemistry are still taught in Russian.
The project is run by the Russian Lyceum, which has been previously accused of teaching history and social studies using materials compiled in the Russian Federation. It was a scandal which led to a failed vote of no confidence against Kõlvart two weeks ago by the Reform Party and IRL.
