DRAFT BILL ON FOREIGN-LANGUAGE SCHOOLS
On December 22, Armenian Parliament adopted a bill on amendments to the Laws “On language” and “On education” with 69 votes for and 1 against. The bill provides for the opening of a limited number of foreign language schools in the country.
Independent MP Victor Dallakyan voted against the bill, whereas ARFD and Heritage parliamentary groups refrained voting.
In the early 1990s the authorities banned education in Russian language for the Armenian citizens. In fact almost all Russian schools were closed.
The bill provides for the opening of two private foreign-language schools and nine schools created on the basis of inter-state agreements (not only Russian schools but also English and French).
Several protest actions were held amid the debates over bills.
Armenia would be in the Stage 3. The birth rate is not as high as other Stage 3 countries, but is still pretty high, and healthcare and education in Armenia are great.
