Due to work overload, I haven’t had the opportunity to update this blog for a while. Regretfully, since my last post, several major developments have taken place that needed proper coverage. These included:
The reintroduction of foreign language schools in Armenia
The education sector being designated as the most corrupt sector in Armenia by Transparency International
The McKinsey report praising Armenian education reforms (sic)
The ongoing deliberations on a new Law on Science in Armenia
The closure of several private HEIs in Armenia by the government
The ongoing debate in Turkey on the authorization of Kurdish in schools
The ban of headscarf in schools in Azerbaijan
Meanwhile, I have continued to follow-up these developments and have created a Facebook page called “Education in Armenia & its Region” where I post a selection of important and interesting news and articles concerning the education and science sectors in Armenia , Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Russia and Turkey, as well as the European Higher Education Area.
I update the page on daily basis and most of the material is in English.
