Eötvös Károly Policy Institute (EKINT), in cooperation with the History Teachers’ Association (TTE) launched a one-year, comprehensive programme from 1st April 2015 in order to define what is acceptable in a democracy and what is not regarding the relationship of education and politics. The principle underlying the project is that no one shall be disadvantaged because of their political views in the education system.
In the framework of the programme the following topics are discussed and analysed:
1. Party politics on school ceremonies
2. Participation of the school in ceremonies and events of local governments
3. Party politicians appearing on school ceremonies
4. Recommendations for preventing the violation of rights.
Eötvös Károly Policy Institute made recommendations both for schools on how to protect students’ and parents’ rights and for politicians on the ethical boundaries of presence on school ceremonies.
