Vojvodina government also reacts to scandalous Croatian language class
The competent authorities of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina support the procedure of withdrawing the disputed textbook from use
On the occasion of a Croatian language lesson broadcast as part of distance learning on the public media service Radio Television of Vojvodina on May 13, 2020, which attracted negative public attention, the government of the province also reacted.
As they pointed out in an announcement, the Provincial Government, i.e. the competent provincial secretariat, did not conduct the procedure of approving the textbook, "Hrvatska krijesnica 8" from which the disputed content was taken.
(The textbook shows a map of the fascist Independent State of Croatia (NDH) and states that "purity of Croatian language" was a concern during its WW2 regime)
The Provincial Secretariat does not support any phenomenon that could lead to the disruption of inter-ethnic relations in Vojvodina, the statement said.
"We do not want this unpleasant episode to diminish the significance of the efforts invested in the implementation of distance learning programs in the languages of national minorities - national communities, within which 1,713 classes have been broadcast in Hungarian, Albanian, Bosnian, Romanian, Ruthenian, Slovak, Bulgarian and Croatian language.
The competent authorities of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina support the procedure of withdrawing the disputed textbook from use, which, to our knowledge, has been initiated by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development."
