Monitoring of School Guard Activity Continued – Ombudsman Visits Technology School in Salgótarján

On 16 October 2020, the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights paid an official visit to Stromfeld Aurél Technology School of the Nógrád County Vocational Training Centre in Salgótarján, where he was received by Headmaster János Bozó.

The Commissioner’s discussion with the head of institution and the school guard on duty at the technology school focused on the experience gathered in relation to the school guard system. Among others, the Ombudsman inquired about the reception of the recently introduced school guard system among the students and their parents, whether there have been any extreme cases of violence, and whether the school guard has had to intervene at the educational institution so far. School guards began to work this September in 419 schools all over the country.
