Armenia’s educational system is on the verge of collapse. This is what deputy of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Anna Kostanyan said during a discussion on the issue of expressing lack of confidence in and impeaching Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport Arayik Harutyunyan initiated by the Bright Armenia faction today.
According to her, more and more people are expressing their discontent with the officials leading the policy of the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport since many problems in the education system are solved by applying the practice of the former authorities.
“The ministry creates a crisis when selecting rectors of universities. Despite the statements that the authorities and particularly the ministry don’t interfere in the management of universities, in reality, they are crudely participating in all the processes of selecting the management boards and rectors,” Kostanyan said and expressed discontent with the minister’s work in other sectors as well, including the organizing of remote education and the appointment of members of the boards of schools.
