The contents of the Armenian history textbooks have become subject of deliberations, said Minister of Education Arayik Harutyunyan.
“Very complicated discussions are taking place, the committee is not coming to a unified conclusion, some specialists are writing 180% different things in the materials” quotes Aysor.am from the Minister.
According to Arayik Harutyunyan, the discussions are mainly around March 1, elections and political judgements.
“The issue is to formulate the contents in a different way. I have not allowed printing of textbooks yet, as long as the committee has not reached a certain conclusion”.
“These problematic themes are normally scheduled for the second semester, therefore the students might start with the old textbooks and shift to the newer ones before they reach those themes.”
The minister also talked about the ongoing March 1 criminal case, which is another reason for difficulties formulating this topic in the textbooks.
