Education Ministry Says It's Willing to Discuss Controversial Bill

The Armenian Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport, in a statement released today, reaffirmed its readiness to discuss all the issues related to a bill seeking to amend the Law on Higher Education and Science.

Many in Armenia have criticized the bill, especially the section that would make the teaching of the Armenian language and literature non-compulsory at colleges and universities.

A group of Yerevan State University students and members of the ARF youth wing continue their sit-down strike in front of the Ministry of Education and Science, demanding the resignation of Minister Arayik Harutyunyan.

The bill would also end the teaching of Armenian church history as a separate subject in public schools.

The ministry, in its statement, says it will soon release an agenda for public debate on the bill and that it will meet with all interested parties.
