Armenians of Javakh demand elimination of the Ministry of Education of Georgia2010-07-28 11:58
Representatives of Javakh diaspora in Russia say that Georgia tries to fully assimilate Armenians, living in Georgian region of Samtskhe-Javakh-Tsalka, and propose own way to solve the problem - News.am.gt-en-newsitem-inside
In the statement, published yesterday, they highlight Georgia continues anti-Armenian policy with "inaction and biased connivance of international democratic institutions". In result the population of Javakh is rapidly losing own national identity.
The description in the statement looks quite bad: nearly all Armenian theatres are eliminated, houses of culture are empty, no press from Armenia comes, no free Armenian mass media are issued, children groups willing to have excursion in Armenia have lots of trouble with border guards; no-one's hurrying to reconstruct ruining Armenian churches.
There are no books on Armenian literature in school liberalities, no textbooks to study Armenian language and history at least on own will. The Ministry instead provides textbooks, distorting history - like in a book for 5th formers mediaeval Armenia is shown as fully or partly inside Georgia; in biology books animals are called only Georgian names.
"Starting with the new school year new programs are introduced, and they can be called in no other way as "educational genocide of Armenian-speaking population of Javakh," because number of lessons in Armenian language and literature is cut by several times," the address authors claim indignantly.
Therefore they demand...to eliminate the Ministry of education of Georgia, and pass the management of school education to the competence of local administrative units, in each unite adopt own law on education.
