The aim of the program "Parents meeting" is to give an opportunity to wider public to be informed about issues, events, programs and prospects of education. The purpose of the program is to create an opportunity for the dialogue between education officials, pedagogues and parents.
In 1993, our country joined the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. During over 20 years, many issues concerning children have been revised and reevaluated in many families, but there are still many families that have not been able to accept that children may also have rights. We have both governmental and non-governmental laws, documents, organizations and commissions that work in favor of children. However, the experts that are concerned about children's rights have observed many cases of their violations and of violence against children in schools, closed educational environments, and family.
