The Movement for Rights and Freedoms, the political representation of the Turkish minority, called for amendments to the Law on Pre-School and School Education, which to make studying of mother language mandatory for 4 lessons weekly. Thus the law will guarantee that the amount of lessons will not be changed by the Minister of Education in time. Presently studying of mother language is a part of the education as an elective or compulsory eligible training, which provides for 3 or 4 lessons weekly. The amendment was rejected with the motives that the Ministry of Education would thus be obliged to hire a teacher for languages of all communities, represented in Bulgaria. By the end of 2012 the law has not voted by the Parliament.
