“I treat strikes like any other civil disobedience. It is the right of the citizens, in this case the students, and I respect it. It would be great to know the requirements as well, I don't know about the requirements at the moment, I just know that there is a strike in those conversations, which is not even a decision, ”he told ArmDaily.am, referring to Armenian language, Armenian literature and Armenian history. Taguhi Ghazaryan, an MP from "My Step", said that making things non-obligatory.

According to the MP, it simply increases the autonomy of universities. “If there is such an initiative, HEIs will choose which subjects to go through. And it is not excluded that those subjects will be chosen, ”he said.

To the observation that many consider it a threat to preservation of the Armenian identity, Ghazaryan replied: “I don't think that after completing Armenian literature, language and history for 12 years at school, repeating the Armenian language for another semester at Bachelor's degree solves the problem of preserving the Armenian identity. Problems need to be addressed in general education. And Armenia's reputation and developments can provide good professionals. ”

On the question that there is no fear that many professors will become unemployed, the MP said: “There is this fear, frankly, as I myself am a graduate of that faculty, and I know that most of the lecturers were filling half the time by teaching in non-professional faculties. This is simply an opportunity to restructure the programs taught in the faculties. Rather than going to school and rebuilding the knowledge they received at school, but rather offer the kind of collaboration that lecturers would find acceptable for that university. In my opinion, when I position myself as a graduate of that faculty, when this proposal is formulated as a course in translating professional textbooks into Armenian at the Faculty of Physics, all natural, non-professional subjects will openly accept those courses. This will contribute to the modernization of the Armenian language of science, and the lecturers will have the opportunity not to lose their hours. ”
