The Ministry of Education recommended that Russian schools switch to six-day education or shorten vacations due to distance learning during coronavirus restrictions. The head of the department Sergey Kravtsov told TASS about it. Many parents and their children are already shocked by this "murderous" proposal.

However, some acquaintances - Muscovite parents evaluate the idea of the Ministry of Education and even in profanity.

Firstly, because school on Saturday will mean a selected day off from adults who will be forced to get up early and early and carry their young children for the sixth time in a row within one week. Accordingly, the second trip will be after class - to return home. Considering that many take their children to the other end of Moscow and back, legal rest on Saturday will become an unattainable goal.

Secondly, I feel sorry for the children too. It's just a pity to tears! As long as adults are guaranteed by the Labor Code a 40-hour five-day work week, snotty workers from 6 years old and older must "fulfill" the recommendations of bureaucrats, like convicts. Neither sleep in the morning, nor go to the cinema, nor the theater, nor the sports section, nor the music school, or just visit neighbors or classmates ... Finally, a Saturday trip to school will ruin the plans of those who are "finishing" for school teachers hiring tutors.

But no! Feet in hand - and walked behind the desk!

What for?

What kind of "corvee" has the Ministry of Education prepared for our children?

It turns out, according to the Minister of Education Kravtsov, schoolchildren on Saturdays have to make up for lost knowledge during quarantines and distance learning. Then, they say, they will be able to pass the Unified State Exam and enter universities.

But here it is easy to object: what did these same schoolchildren do during quarantines, sitting for 10-12 hours every day at computers and listening to lessons online? And haven't we read the statements of the bureaucracy about the super-usefulness and extra-efficiency of computer education?

By God, whoever you ask from your parents - everyone declares in a voice that they could not have imagined more hard labor than the hated remote control! And now it turns out that the sacrifices were in vain and in addition to the experienced nightmare comes Saturday nightmare-2.

However, the recommendations of the ministry turned out to be so monstrous that a number of Russian regions immediately rejected the Saturday "punishment" of children and parents. Kommersant, for example, found out that in Crimea, St. Petersburg, Perm Territory, Sakhalin and Ulyanovsk regions, they do not intend to transfer schools to six days.

“We did not take this step even after the peninsula became part of the Russian Federation in 2014, so as not to provoke anger of children and their parents. (highlighted by us - ed.) And now we will not do this either", - explained the First Deputy Minister of Education of Crimea Valentin Boyko.

The vice-governor of St. Petersburg Irina Potekhina also stated that there is no need to change the school schedule.

Glory to you, Lord!! Not all officials in our country are ready to fulfill fantasies from Moscow.

True, the ministry itself guessed that the recommendations would not find nationwide support and therefore made a reservation that each school would independently decide whether to switch to six-day education or not.

Along the way, by the way, it turned out that in some regions of Russia, despite the 21st century in the yard, Saturday hard labor for children and parents is not an exception, but the norm. In particular, this was told about in the Jewish Autonomous Region, Yakutia, Dagestan, Khabarovsk Territory and Irkutsk Region...

The school is trying to compensate for the low qualifications of the teachers and the poor quality of the teaching material with the help of excessive sitting in classrooms. Otherwise, why would Russian schoolchildren, unlike children from many other countries, do their homework until midnight, attend classes on weekends, and even hire a bunch of private teachers? Although it is no secret that all these overloads lead to the same result - often the complete disgust of children from learning.
