The Ministry of Education and Science claims that 'Armenian Church History' taught at school does not practice preaching and the textbooks do not contain any manifestations of intolerance. However, a number of experts disagree with this statement.
“I would suggest developing a Christian ethics course as part of general education curricula. The course will be based on secular principles and will serve as an alternative to 'Armenian Church History' subject,’ said Armine Davtyan, School Psychologist, Coauthor of a study on ‘The Content Analysis of ‘Armenian Church History’ textbooks and Their Impact on the Young Generation’ at the Media Center hosted discussion.
Alongside with Armine Davtyan, Hasmik Margaryan, Specialist at the Department of Armenian Studies and Social-Cultural Disciplines of the National Institute of Education at the Education and Science Ministry of Armenia, shared her thoughts on the issue.
