“The reason for my dismissal is the appointment of the Deputy Director of the Educational Research Institute on May 13th without any prior consultations and arrangements with me. There have been more examples of the lack of consultations in recent months, which has made me lose the sense of the real management of the Institute. After the recent minister’s decision, which he announced to me, I realized That I have nothing left but to resign from the position of Director of the International Education Bureau ”- we read in the email sent to the staff of the International Bureau of Education.
Łukasz Arendt Qualified Ph.D. in Economics and Professor at the University of Lodz. He headed the Institute for Educational Research from April 2020. In 2016-2019 he was the Director of the Institute of Labor and Social Affairs.

He trusts Czarnka with a new job
The Deputy Director of the aforementioned Office of International Education is Dr. Jacob Cooper, Assistant, Consultant and one of Przemyslav Czarnik’s closest partners. His career in the voivodeship began when Czarnek became a Lublin voivode. In the local government elections, he ran from the PiS list to the Lublin City Council. Even the personal support of his manager did not help him win the seat. After the parliamentary elections, he became the social assistant to the new deputy in the Law and Justice Party (Ksarnik won more than 87,000 votes).
After Czarnik was appointed Minister of Education and Science, things went downhill. Cooper became MEiN’s President for Student Affairs representative and Politburo advisor. Join a team of advisors headed by Prof. Valdemar Baruch. It was this team that was responsible, inter alia, for work on the National Copernican Program, which was contested by the Polish Academy of Sciences.

If director Arendt didn’t agree with something, he quit. We respected his will. We will not arrest anyone by force, Przemyslav Czarnik says in an interview with Onet.
We also asked if it was already known who the new manager would be and if it would be Jacob Cooper due to the vacancy. We haven’t calculated it yet. I don’t think it was Jacob Cooper. We still have a month left – adds the minister.
