Rise up from ignorance
How many of those 683k come from Ukraine? As you know we treat economic immigrants from Ukraine (ex-USSR in general) different than refugees from Muslim countries. Herein lies the so-called Polish xenophobia. We can accept 600k Ukrainians but not 600 Muslims :haha:By law, kids that don't speak Polish get 2-5 hours of Polish language classes per week for one year. But at the same time they also attend normal classes with other kids. Polish law also allows a different solution - schools can open a prep-class for kids that don't speak Polish. They go to such class for one year before they start normal education in Polish. I assume that most Ukrainian students don't need that as our languages are similar enough so that they can go to normal class straight away.
The number of kids of immigrants in Polish schools is quickly rising, mostly thanks to Ukrainian immigrants. Last year there were 44 000 immigrant kids in public schools, year before - 30 000, 2 years before - 14 000.
It's kinda hilarious that despite our stupid government's anti-immigrant rhetoric, we receive more migrant workers than anywhere else in the world :lol: First residence permits issued in the EU in 2017:
Poland: 683 228
