15:28 14/08/2007

Armenian Minister of Education and Science Levon Lazarian introduced
the pace of education reforms at a yesterday’s meeting with thirty
Armenian teachers who arrived from eleven countries throughout the
world to take part in training courses held every year. The minister
expressed concern that fewer students attend Armenian schools abroad
and praised the pedagogues for a mission significant for the nation
that they bear on their shoulders with all its hardship.

During the meeting, the diaspora Armenian teachers raised issues
concerning them and came up with suggestions on different phases of
education management. They were particularly interested in teaching
Armenian as a foreign language, textbooks and supplementary materials,
establishment of Armenian department at foreign universities and
issues relating to the possibility of support from the state budget
of Armenia to those aims.
