YEREVAN. – All those who today are against the new standards of education proposed by the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports were silent at the time, and during the events of 2018, they went and voted for the people who have launched the campaign against Armenology and everything Armenian. Eduard Sharmazanov, deputy chairman of the former ruling Republican Party of Armenia, told this to a press conference on Monday.
He strongly criticized the new approach to teaching Armenia’s children the history of their own country and people, and supported the respective position of a number of scholars and experts. "And so, where is the homeland of the Armenian people located? It is the Armenian Highlands. [But] now, with these new standards [of education in Armenia], the ‘Armenian Highlands’ have been replaced by 'Eastern Anatolia,'" Sharmazanov said indignantly.
