During the October 15 session of the Permanent City Duma Comission for Education, Welfare, Science, Culture and Social Issues, Yuri Golodyaev, head of the city department of education, reported that medical workers of physiotherapeutic rooms and municipal school swimming pools may soon lose their jobs.
Victor Kuvaytsev stressed that such cuts may have grave consequences.
“We are working with these issues and will address the [regional] Legislative Assembly. We will not solve it ourselves otherwise. So this question will be controlled. This problem exists not only in municipal schools and kindergartens, but also in universities and colleges,” said the city head.
He reminded the session members that in the past years the higher education facilities employed enough medical staff to examine the students: however, after the medical rooms were given away free of charge, the situation has changed.
