Homel teachers used in money laundering schemes?

School personnel are given financial assistance, but ordered then to return the money to the headmaster.
A letter from teachers of secondary school No. 60 in Homel was sent to charter97.org. Teachers say the school administration uses them in money laundering schemes and makes pay for dubious training courses.
“I am writing on behalf of teachers of secondary school No. 60 in Honel. The school administration, namely headmaster Anatoly Litoshka, a former MP, make teachers to pay their own money (200,000 rubles) for an exam to obtain a computer skills certificate by tacit consent of the district education department. What are the grounds? Who has ever taught us how to use a computer? Some of us don't even have a PC at home! We cannot refuse to pay under threat of dismissal.”
The headmaster uses teachers to wash money, the school staff says. “We were given financial assistance – 45,000 rubles. But we then were ordered to return this money to the headmaster. This is money laundering!”
School teachers write no one can help them. “We have 14 English teachers, but they don't have enough work and thus have low salaries. A teacher with 10-year experience still has the second rank, though one can apply for the highest rank after 10 years of work. They deceive us, but no one can help us. I know and believe that publication of this letter on the website will improve the situation. We are confident it will be more effective than the State Control Committee.”
