After more than a month of boycotting and over two weeks of camping in front of the Ministry of Education and Science, the members of the High School Plenum announced on May 15 that they’ve put their protest on pause.

While they removed their camp, they still demand moratorium on the ill-conceived external testing, which needs improving, and return to the previous concept of final exam at the end of secondary school (“matura”). However, they do not consider the current government legitimate and see no point in trying to negotiate with them.
