International Influences on Post-Soviet Armenian Education
Terzian, Shelley
European Journal of Education, v51 n2 p281-294 Jun 2016
This article analyses the most recent international influences on Armenian education, illustrating how international standards are driving post-Soviet reform in the Armenian Secondary Schools. Since 1991, when Armenia became independent from the Soviet Union, organisations such as the World Bank and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation-Armenia (OSIAF-A) played a crucial role in creating and implementing the Armenian National Curriculum (Curriculum) and State Standards for Secondary Education throughout the education system. In addition, in 2005, the Armenian Government and the Ministry of Education signed the Bologna Process, affirming the alignment of higher education with the international standards of the EU.
