In the city of Keila, a Russian school is indeed being closed, which has been operating there since Soviet times, when a military unit was located in the city. Now, in Keila, there is such a demographic situation: according to the 2018 census, there are only 10,014 residents in the city, of which 84.9% are Estonians, and 11%, that is, 1101 or 1002 people are Russians. Thus, there are only a few hundred Russian families in the city, and there are not enough children for whom it is time to go to first grade to get this class.
But this does not mean that children who do not speak Estonian at the proper level are deprived of the right to education. The town of Klooga is located 13 km from Keila; there are Russian classes in the school there; in the state of the school there is even a Russian-speaking speech therapist. 23 km away is the town of Paldiski, where works Russian school. In 27 km – Tallinn, where there are several Russian schools and even a Russian high school, that is, a 12-year school, where, however, in the senior grades, in accordance with the law, only 40% of the program is in Russian.
9-year secondary education in Estonia necessarily for all, no exceptions are provided.
