Ombudsman Continues Monitoring of School Guard Activity in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County

On 20 October 2020, the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights visited two schools in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County, where he met with the heads of institutions and school guards. Dr. Ákos Kozma was received by Headmaster István Péter at the Kállay Rudolf Vocational School of the Mátészalka Centre of Vocational Training, and by Headmistress Mrs. Zita Zsigó Tóth at the Sipkay Barna Technology School of the Nyíregyháza Centre of Vocational Training.

During the official visits, the Ombudsman inquired about the experience gathered over the past few months, whether there had been any extreme cases of violence, and whether the school guard had had to intervene at the educational institution so far. School guards are on duty in altogether 29 primary and secondary schools in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County.
