Unprecedented security measures in Georgian schools

15 January 2010 [11:08] - TODAY.AZ
Unprecedented security measures are underway in Georgian schools due to deterioration of crime situation.
In recent days local TV companies have aired video reports about violent fights of students, even girls, right in school. Mostly these videos were shot by cell phones.

There's no static data, but the society is concerned over this.

The measures include prohibition of visiting schools by students who have cash.

Instead they will be given special credit cards to let them buy food and other necessary things inside school.

Education Minister Dimitri Shashkin said to Imedi TV channel that a special institution to supervise students will be established.

It will include mandaturebi, specially trained security employees.

Mandaturebi has been working in the Parliament of Georgia for years, preventing fights between MPs.

It's also possible that division based on age principle will be introduced: students of 1st-6th ; 7th-9th; and 10-12th forms will study in different buildings.
