Problema finanțării școlilor românești din Brașov
Keywords:schools, Brașov, politicians, diplomacy, Parliament
The financing of the Romanian schools in Brașov was a much debated issue in the last years of the 19th century. Founded in 1850, these schools have been constantly receiving aid from Romania since 1860, but after the establishment of the Austro-Hungarian dualism, the Hungarian government demanded the cessation of these aids, under the threat of school closure. However, the money from Romania continued to be sent in secret, until this issue was used as a weapon in the fights between political parties in Romania. Then the Hungarian government again threatened to close the schools and diplomatic negotiations were held between Romania and Austria-Hungary, which led to a solution to finance them from Romania. The agreement was debated in the Romanian Parliament in January-February 1900, which gave rise to new attacks between the parties represented in the Parliament.
