LAW ON HIGHER EDUCATION WAS DISCUSSED AT STUDENTS’ INITIATIVE
Student-Civic Initiative “YSU Restart” organized a discussion at YSU Hall after Palyans today with the participation of experts in the field of education, students, university professors and student council members.

Representative of “YSU Restart” Initiative David Petrosyan welcomed the participants and underlined the discussions as the students are the real clients of the education sector.

“The students have not expressed ideas regarding the draft. Therefore, the purpose of today’s discussion is to highlight the main provisions that are problematic and present relevant proposals to the relevant bodies,” - said D. Petrosyan.

The core of the discussion was not only the draft law, but also recent amendments and changes.

The general provisions of the draft law were first presented by Arevik Anapiosyan, an expert in the field of education, referring to specific issues, higher education institutions, academic freedom, student involvement, as well as issues arising from them.

A. Anapiosyan spoke in details about the special status given to YSU by government, pointing out that the decision authorizing the presence of an official in YSU Board of Trustees has a political context.

Political scientist Vahram Soghomonyan expressed his position on the draft of the law, drawing parallels between the bill and the real state of education.

The speaker also highlighted the discussions held as a result of the self-organization of students within the HEIs, which should be of continuous nature.


The discussion was also attended by YSU Student Council representatives, represented by the head of the structure David Apoyan.

Comments and remarks included in the list presented by Student Council were unanimously accepted by the members of the Initiative and participants of the discussion, so a heated debate took place.

As a result, the SC members conveyed their comments and suggestions to the meeting organizers.

The organizers of the student initiative intend to continue discussions.
