Also many Albanians from Skopje and other regions where Albanians are a minority eg Bitola, Resen, Ohrid, Prilep,Krushevo Veles ect.. are educated in Macedonian.. simply because there aren't any or quality Albanian language schools in those regions..or parents choose to send them to Macedonian schools..

The number of students are broken down by ethnicity and language. So no Macedonian/Roma/Turks/Serbs are all broken down based on their own ethnicity and not all lumped into the "Macedonian" group. Its right here in this publication and graph. They have been publishing these findings for many years.

Hence the language law will make all Albanians equal when it comes language rights regardless of numbers and where they live.. problem solved..
The Albanians signed the Ohrid Framework agreement which guaranteed them these rights based on the number of them living in each municipality. If they weren't happy with the agreement then they should have never signed it. Don't complain about it after the fact. Irrespective, Albanians are emigrating from Macedonia en masse. So the more than emigrate the better it will be for the country.

Also how many Albanians who were born or parents were born in Macedonia live or work outside Macedonia??
This is based on voting patterns in Kichevo elections and births in both Oslomej and Zajas (for example). Zajas and Oslomej are both high emigration areas for Albanians and the number of births in those two municipalities are not proportional to the inflated number of people in the 2002 census.

Also in order to vote an Albanian mayor into Kicevo many expats who reside in other countries have to travel back to Macedonia to vote. These Albanians have officially emigrated but are still on the voter rolls and counted as Citizens.
