December 12, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The monitoring of Armenia’s special comprehensive public schools has revealed a number of cases of physical abuse against children and missing strategy of responding to such cases as a means of prevention and disclosure.

The civil observer group formed to monitor the special schools under the ministry of education and sciences on Wednesday reported the situation at the country’s 13 special schools during the 2010-2011 academic year. The survey included 6 school principles, 67 teachers, 27 parents and 150 students.

Most of the issues are common to all schools – poor repair and premise facilities, heating, lack of qualified experts etc., and require systematic solutions; at separate institutions, however, other issues have been identified.
