Inclusive education should be removed from general education schools, such a proposal was expressed at the scientific and practical conference “Parental co-responsibility in 21st century pedagogy” held at Liepāja University (LiepU) on Friday, informed LiepU public relations specialist Simona Laiveniece.

Those present acknowledged that this topic is becoming more and more relevant and that it must be addressed jointly by the school, state and local government institutions and, first of all, the family.

In the scientific and practical opening of the conference, LiepU vice-rector of science Linda Pavītola emphasized that the topic of parental co-responsibility is currently relevant for everyone,

because it is increasingly common to hear about behavioral problems of children and young people, but not about the responsibility of parents.

The goal of the conference is to find solutions to the current problem in joint work.

As Laiveniece informs, the participants of the conference listened to the report of Ulda Novicka, Chief of the Municipal Police of Liepāja City, on security risks and the speech of LiepU professor Pavel Jur on the topic “Preconditions for the formation of responsibility”.

The main part of the conference was practical – in working groups, participants analyzed socio-pedagogical situations and presented solutions to the audience. The situations to be analyzed were marked by real situations in schools – student aggression, emotional and physical violence, inclusive education, cooperation between teachers and parents. Assistant Professor Inga Zeide, the organizer of the conference, promises to send a message to Latvian education policymakers after the conference, as well as to expect feedback on the proposals made.

In the final discussion, Saeima member Česlavs Batņa (AS), head of the Juvenile Affairs Commission of Liepāja Municipality Police Edmunds Untulis, principal of Aizpute elementary school Renāte Goldberga and Liedaga secondary school psychologist Vineta Drāzniece sought answers to the questions.

Batņa noted that a motion is being prepared to incorporate parental co-responsibility into legislation.

The scientific-practical conference “Co-responsibility of parents in 21st century pedagogy” is held with the support of Liepāja municipality and JSC “Liepājas papiris”.
