The Ombudsman for Children of Republic of Srpska at invitation of the Youth Council, today in the youth camp has been talking to high school students, participants of the 15th Encounter of Youth of Republic of Srpska.

In a very short time in conversation with the Ombudsman for Children, high school students showed a real interest in conversation about the many issues that affect their rights and pointed to a number of situations that need to be changed.

They noted, among other things, that secondary education should be compulsory with the introduction of entrance examination for admission to secondary school and that the curriculum is too extensive, while it does not include those matters, issues and problems affecting them, (health care, sexual education ...), that there is not enough practical training and in particular emphasized the need to define rules of conduct in the educational system applicable to all.
