According to the Concordat articles 16, 18 and 19 in conformity with the legislation of the Republic of Latvia, the Catholic Church has the right to found institutions of higher education for teachers of religion which will grant State recognised diplomas. The Catholic Church has the right to establish and manage schools at every level, in conformity with the laws of the Republic of Latvia and the norms of canon law. The foundation of Catholic schools shall be requested by the Bishops’ Conference of Latvia acting on behalf of the local ordinary. Catholic schools, as well as institutions of higher education, shall observe the laws of the Republic of Latvia concerning the general norms relating to the national curriculum, to their management and the granting of State recognised diplomas. Catholic Schools are entitled to financial support, in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Latvia. Teachers and other employees in officially recognised Catholic schools, as well as students and their parents, shall enjoy the same rights and have the same obligations as their counterparts in state and local government schools.
