Theoretically, this seems impossible, but it turns out that you can earn from students from abroad. Provided they are students from a poorer country. Other factors are also important – a sense of security and a convenient location that promotes emigration. Ukraine meets ideal criteria.
Ukraine, overwhelmed by social unrest, with terrible education, but close to the EU Poland, widely recognized as a stable, safe and guaranteeing western education level.
We have already got used to Ukrainian employees in our companies, stores and services. It seems that Ukrainian children in schools are a branch of eastern neighbors emigrating to Poland. However, this is not always the case.
A large population of Ukrainian students stay in our country without parental care. How it’s possible? Who benefits from it?
There were companies that specialized in organizing trips of Ukrainian children to Polish schools. Of course, they charge considerable fees for this. It generally looks as follows:
According to the provisions of the Polish Family Code, a parent cannot assign childcare to a third party, and children cannot stay in Poland without a legal guardian. At the same time, there is no such provision in the educational law. Therefore, Ukrainian teenagers remain formally and realistically unattended. Boarding schools will not replace a parent’s guardianship function.
Why, then, despite questionable compliance with regulations and on the border of ethics, Polish schools welcome children from Ukraine? It is in the interest of schools that have such a poor reputation that they would be shut down if they are not recruited.
So a situation arose, from which all parties seemingly are satisfied – parents have a sense of ensuring their children safety and education, children have the opportunity to stay in the country without war and with better education, schools ensure full enrollment and functioning. Intermediary companies that earn the most in this process are also satisfied. The latter, however, raises the biggest doubts and requires urgent legal regulations. You should not make money on children.
