Ministry withholds right to teach from private institution
The ministry based its decision not to grant the school the right to teach on an expert analysis conducted by the Estonian Quality Agency for Higher and Vocational Education (EKKA) as well as an assessment by the Ministry of the Interior.
Ministry of Education Deputy Secretary General for Higher Education and Research Indrek Reimand noted that the risks highlighted in these assessments were compelling. “In addition to security-related problems, the school’s sustainability is one big question mark if future students being able to begin their studies is dependent on receiving a residence permit,” Reimand said. “We would ultimately be jeopardising the students’ rights, including their right to quality higher education.”
