Apel public de atentionare a comitetelor parintesti

 

 

In prezent, desi exista in implementare majoritatea instrumentelor de prevenire si combatere a coruptiei si taxelor informale, desi, pe alocuri atestam anumite progrese, observam din contra, o diversificare a tipurilor de taxe informale si majorarea sistematica a cuantumului acestora, aparitia unor noi taxe, precum si salarizarea ilegala a unor angajati (paznici, deriticatori, bucatari. personal didactic si chiar directori) din taxele impuse parintilor, colectate prin constrangere si intimidare, in unele cazuri, precum si hartuirea elevilor si parintilor. Luind în consideratie amloarea fenomenele mentionate, asociatiile obstesti Parintii solidari, CReDO, CNA Studentesc si semnatarii, au decis sa atentioneze parintii si autoritatle in privinta urmatoarelor:

 

Ilegalitatii actiunilor comitetelor parintesti, care tin de colectarile ilegale a taxelor fixe informale. Solicitam informarea regulata a parintilor si cadrelor didactice de catre autoritatile de profil, în privinta ilegalitatii colectarii taxelor informale in structura financiara piramidala si atentionarea referitor la sanctiunile de care sunt pasibile;

 

Apel la respectarea cadrului legal si principiului de aderare benevola în activitatea asociatiilor obstesti a parintilor, intru sustinerea dezvoltarii institutiilor de invatamint, sesizarea oportunitatilor de autofinantare, precum desemnarea a 2 %;

 

Apel la parteneriat si integritate intru construirea unui sistem educational liber de coruptie, inclusiv cu scopul instituirii asociatiilor parintesti locale, regionale si nationale, in perspectiva; 

 

Apel catre personalul didactic la resprectarea prevederilor Codului Educatiei, Codului de Etica al cadrului didactic, neadmiterea implicarii în procesul de colectare a taxelor informale si evitarea intimidarilor, hartuirilor si constringerilor de achitare a taxelor informale sau aderare la asociatiile obstesti ale parintilor.

Apel catre parintii responsabili, grupurile de initiativa si asociatiile obstesti la prezentarea, cit si solicitarea de informatii pe linga organizatii si experti specializati, inclusiv prin intermediul colaborarii cu scopul de a intocmi rapoarte alternative si dezvolta parteneriate;

 

La denuntarea cazurilor de coruptie în sistemul de educatie pe canalul informal al societatii civile si cele oficiale existente:

Ala Revenco, reprezentanta AO  Parinti solidari, considera ca este necesara o transparentizare a resurselor publice alocate, precum si din alte surse catre institutiile de invatamint si publicarea raporturilor trimestriale privind faptele de coruptie sesizate si sanctiunile disciplinare aplicate la nivelul sectorului educational legate de fapte de coruptie, precum si întocmirea propriilor rapoarte, alternative celor oficiale, pentru atragerea atentiei la nivel national si international asupra fenomenului endemic de coruptie. Dna Revenco indeamna la solidaritate si colaborare în acest sens.

 

Olga Bîtca, reprezentanta AO CReDO, solicita autoritatilor reactionarea adecvata, conform unei practici uniforme la plingerile parintilor si solicita instituirea Consiliilor de Etica ale institutiilor care ar examina pe intern astfel de plingeri, ale organelor colegiale de supraveghere a gestiunii resurselor alocate si colectate legal, precum si autoritatilor de resort, finisarea elaborarii si votarii legii privind protectia avertizorilor de integritate si instituirii unui canal oficial de avertizare, cu optiunea reala de protectie a anonimitatii si receptionarii plingerilor si prelucrarii informatiilor parvenite.


Sanda Sandu, reprezentanta CNA Studentesc, considera necesara consolidarea transparentei în procesul  utilizarii fondurilor extrabugetare de catre institutiile de invatamant, eficientizarea rolului reprezentantilor parintiilor si elevilor în prevenirea si lupta contra coruptiei sistemice din mediul educational. Solicitam crearea unei platforme deschise de colaborare dintre societatea civila de profil, institutiile statului si cele educationale cu scopul de a genera discutii si dezbateri privind integritatea si transparenta sistemului educational din RM si de a crea un set de mecanisme efective care urmeaza a fi aplicate de catre stakeholders.


In contextul celor mentionate, ne exprimam grija cu privire la diversificarea tipurilor de taxe informale, aparitia unor noi taxe, lipsa transparentei in institutiile de invatamant, precum si, inexistenta protectiei efective a avertizorilor.

 

In concluzie, semnatarii solicita tuturor factorilor de decizie luarea masurilor reale si efective de prevenire si lupta impotriva coruptiei si asigurarea unui sistem educational integru si transparent.

The collection of informal taxes in the education system by parents committees is illegal. This is the message transmitted by the public association “Parinti Solidari” (“Solidary Parents”), the Resource Center for Human Rights (CReDO) and the Student National Anticorruption Center. The signatories of a public call express their concern about the diversification of types of informal taxes and appearance of new taxes, lack of transparency in education institutions and of effective methods for protecting informers. Representatives of the three associations call on all the decision makers to take real and effective measures to prevent and fight corruption and ensure an integral and transparent education system.

In a news conference at IPN, the representative of “Solidary Parents” Ala Revenco said that meetings with parents are usually held in education institutions at the start of the new school year and all kinds of illegal taxes start to be collected in these. The purpose of the parents committees is actually to support the education process and to supervise the management of the institution’s budget, not to collect money. The collection of illegal taxes affects the image of the teaching staff and creates the impression that other illegalities are also committed in the institutions where illegal payments are collected.

Ala Revenco noted that about 1 million lei is collected annually at a kindergarten in Chisinau. In some of the institutions, this sum is twice higher or even larger. The use of public funds and other sources allocated to education institutions should be transparent and reports on the identified acts of corruption and imposed disciplinary punishment should be published quarterly. As regards the contributions made by parents, these should be voluntary and transparent and the goods purchased by parents should be included in a register. Now each generation purchases goods and it is not clear what happens to those bought earlier.

CReDO representative Olga Batca said the amounts collected in education institutions are much higher than the strictly necessary sums, especially in kindergartens. A parents association should be registered with the Ministry of Justice and parents can joint this on a voluntary basis. The made donations should be confirmed by a check or a banking document. Transparent financial reports should be worked out and the management of budgets should be participatory.

Olga Batca noted a problem is now witnessed as to the opportunities of reporting cases of corruption. For example, the hotline of the Ministry of Education works inefficiently or practically does not work. The authorities should react appropriately to parents’ complaints, according to a uniform practice. Ethics Councils should be set up at education institutions to examine such complaints at internal level.

Sanda Sandu, of the Student National Anticorruption Center, said transparency in the use of extra-budgetary funds by education institutions should be increased and the role of representatives of parents and students in preventing and fighting system corruption in the education system should be improved. The young woman referred mainly to the university education system, saying this becomes a hotbed of corruption, while the lack of transparency is the key problem.

Sanda Sandu also said that corruption has different forms in universities. For example, a student who is not in the country can pass the exams and obtain a diploma. Protectionism and nepotism and the obligation to purchase textbooks for teachers are also among the existing problems. The students fear to report cases of corruption and it is thus important to ensure the anonymity of the informer or revenge could be taken otherwise.

The signatories urge to report cases of corruption in the education system through the informal channel of civil society and the existing official means, such as parintisolidari@gmail.com, Facebook page - Parinti Solidari as a temporary hotline, and the hotline of the National Anticorruption Center 0 800 55555 or through www.cna.md.
