Teachers condemn Golden Dawn intervention in school art project

Teachers at a primary school in the Athens suburb of Nea Philadelphia accused far-right Golden Dawn on Thursday of trying to interfere in their work after one of the party’s MPs asked the Education Ministry to investigate an art project assigned to children titled “As Refugees Facing Migration.”

In a statement, the teachers pointed out that Nea Philadelphia was a neighborhood populated by Greek refugees from Asia Minor. They asked for teaching unions and the Education Ministry to condemn the action of the Golden Dawn MP, who asked for educators to face disciplinary action over the project assigned to pupils.
