Speaking about the measures to combat peer violence, the minister said that the proposed measures were adopted, which include changes and additions not only to by-laws, but also to the law on education.

One of the goals is to prevent the manipulation of certain acts that already exist, such as the fact that a child who commits violence of the third degree is discharged and enrolled in another school, without sanctions, and the minimum level of punishment for parents has been raised.

He expects that the amendments to the law will be before the deputies already in February.
