I have finished my school! How many times have you heard or said yourself that to your child in the midst of his struggles with fractions, functions, cases, stylistic figures, battles …? Many, probably.

But the truth is that every parent ends his school only when his children get out of the school benches. Many, unfortunately, seem as if they are not aware of this or believe that their kids will be able to “squeeze” through the labyrinth of school life alone. Children are left to a system which, at this moment, is not very systematic.

That’s precisely why we launched the RANAC.RS (BACKPACK) school portal. We want to enable good communication between schools and parents. To expose all factors that affect school work. We want to “move” our parents, not to remain uninformed, to motivate them to seek, ask, participate, to not accept excursions not organized by the schools unquestioningly, to question who writes text books, how were the suppliers for school canteens chosen, what are their rights, but also obligations and how one schoolchild, parent and teacher should behave.

School and education are an introduction to life! Pillar of society. In Serbia, it has long been a very shaky pillar. We want to do everything to strengthen it. Nobody will solve our problems but ourselves. We expect the same from other parents. From each individual. Let’s give the kids the ability to fight for the future at school, not on the street.

The text itself on our portal is not the goal. Text is the way to reach the goal. And the goal is to solve the problem, if the problem exists.

We are moving on. We are full of ideas. Ready for suggestions, praise, criticism, suggestions … Fighting for education is a struggle for the future. A goal – FOR SCHOOL TO BE A SCHOOL.

The backpack is on our back.
