Dirt, scandals

The name of the Lily Grinevich is associated with a considerable number of scandals. For the first time about her talked about in July 2013 when she received a concussion while blocking the opposition to the work of the Council. Then, as said Vladimir Aryev, she pushed the Deputy of the city Council Oleksandr Lishchenko. Ed banged his head on the wall and lost consciousness. Colleagues Lilia Mikhailovna complained Lishchenko to the Prosecutor General and interior Ministry, stating that he was threatened with death and other people’s representatives.
For the entire political career of L. M. Hrynevych most controversial period was 2016. Why promised to place education reform? It turned out that Grinevich, instead of having to deal with the reform on a modest salary allowed himself an expensive vacation abroad – your birthday she celebrated in the most expensive restaurant Toronto Alo Restauran. The rest 19 people (by conservative estimates) to the restaurant cost at least 4 thousand dollars. Moreover, it was during working hours the official.
The introduction in Ukraine of 12-year secondary education has caused a significant amount of negative feedback. That is more outraged that during the year Lilia Mikhailovna decided to rewrite all programs, to republish all textbooks for schools, to reform secondary and higher education institutions. In addition, the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine has published on its website a draft model curriculum for grades 10-11 in which, in a compulsory program, it turns out, there is no place of exact and natural Sciences. Optional steel physics, chemistry, biology, geography, Informatics. There is a fear that such steps may lead to degradation of the younger generation.
This little Grinevich. The mseu publishes textbooks and on the title leaves of which are marked: “Textbook for special General educational establishments for mentally retarded children. Recommended by the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine”. The abusive treatment of children immediately crossed out the previous innovations of the Minister, and even absurd ban on teachers using red pen when checking the notebooks.
In November 2016 rattled another scandal. In schools held by the Ministry the survey of Ukrainian students with Russian-language questionnaires designed by Danish money, on the subject of whether, in their opinion, Ukrainian and Russian are one people. She Grinevich explained that the survey was in school by mistake. According to her, the Ministry dealt with this issue in 2015, and a contractor accidentally duplicated educational institutions old degree.
And in December of 2016. MONA seen in the latest scandal, which erupted after L. Grinevich presented the first evidence of public recognition of higher spiritual education. Thanks to innovations Lilia Mikhailovna pseudovector contributing once her career now can open a school and handing out diplomas.
Yes, at the same time, are inhibited when the promised reforms, the Minister realize their absurd ideas and gets a premium for labor intensity. She additionally added (for works) 16 thousand UAH. She Grinevich publicly admitted that it might not be clear MONA from the clan and Tabachnik said that the people of the ex-Minister continues to work in the Ministry.
And already the blatant fact is that, in addition to the scandals and blunders in the professional sphere, were revealed in 2016, that the son Grinevich illegally acquired land that was intended for the participant of anti-terrorist operation.
And yet, it is unclear on what basis the Minister of education received from Arsen Avakov premium weapons. Maybe it is needed in order to more impunity to use other people’s scientific work. Earlier Liliya Hrynevych were repeatedly convicted of plagiarism.
