“For 5 months now, the Ukrainian people have been fighting the occupier, both with weapons and information. Therefore, one should not forget about the fight against the culture of the aggressor state, which is still included in the curriculum for Ukrainian children, in particular, the works of Russian figures in the program of foreign literature. Corresponding proposals for changes to the curricula developed by the working group were sent to the relevant ministry, but so far there has been no reaction, ”says the letter sent to the commission by the Student Council of Lviv.

As the chairman of the commission Ivanna Gerus noted, back in the spring, when the working groups were meeting to develop the concept of adapting the education system to the conditions of martial law, representatives of the educational environment actively discussed the issues of making changes to curricula, school textbooks regarding the withdrawal of Russian and Belarusian content.

“The ministry “thinks” for a long time, but this needs to be done. Our children cannot study the literature of those who kill them and their parents,” Gerus stressed.
