Georgia puts up Russian language barriers in schools
English is being pushed onto syllabuses in a bid to break with a powerful neighbour to the north
Quote:

With Alexander Pushkin's framed visage on the wall and creased editions of fellow Russian literary giants on dusty shelves, Natela Chokhonelidze's office recalls a very different era at Georgia's state university.

"We once had a staff of 50, and now there are five, because there aren't many students," said the 70-year-old professor emeritus at the university's institute of Russian studies. "Russian language is fading out," she quipped, "with me!"

Chokhonelidze is on the losing side of a deliberate shift in the former Soviet republic as its pro-western leadership tries to supplant Russian with English as the default second language of 21st-century Georgia.

Last month hundreds of native English speakers joined the first day of school as teaching assistants under an ambitious programme to have every child aged five to 16 speak English. English is now compulsory and Russian optional.

The aim appears pragmatic in a globalised world where English dominates and Georgia's investment-driven economy is seeking partners in Turkey and the European Union.

It fits neatly too, however, with President Mikheil Saakashvili's policy of dragging the Caucasus country of 4.5 million people out from Russia's orbit, two years after war shattered already fragile ties between the neighbours.

"We're a free and independent country and our people are free and independent. It's their choice which language to learn," said education minister Dmitry Shashkin, an ethnic Russian, in English.

The government plans to recruit 1,000 native-English speakers by the end of the year on $272 per month, eventually building up to one per school.

English "opens many doors", said Shashkin. "Georgia doesn't have oil, Georgia doesn't have natural gas. The resource we have is our people, the intellectual potential of our country."

On the streets of Georgia's capital Tbilisi, where blue European Union flags flutter outside the parliament building, all Georgians over the age of 40 speak Russian fluently. Shopkeepers are happy to converse in Russian. The younger, educated generation, however, prefer English, and can even bridle if you attempt to talk to them in the language of Georgia's powerful northern neighbour and adversary.

Much of this is generational. Students entering university now were born after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The influence of western pop culture and the internet is strong.

So too is the fallout from the deterioration in political relations with Russia since Georgia's 2003 Rose Revolution swept aside the ex-Soviet old guard and brought Saakashvili and his team of English-speaking ministers to power.

He set Georgian sights on joining Nato, to the anger of Russia. Political ties collapsed with the 2008 war, when Russia crushed an assault by Georgia's US-trained military on the rebel pro-Russian region of South Ossetia.

Trade links are minimal. Visa requirements and torturous travel routes have strained ties between family and friends.

"Taken in the wider context ... it seems there is a political element behind this," said Shorena Shaverdashvili, editor of Georgian weekly Liberali.

English should be taught, she said, but "Why replace one [language] with the other? This is our neighbourhood and the common language with our neighbours is Russian."

Georgia is now leading the retreat of Russian language in the post-Soviet Union. But Russian remains the lingua franca across much of the former Soviet empire. It is still understood and spoken from Moldova in the west to Kazakhstan and Tajikistan in what was once Soviet central Asia. In the cafes and bars of Dushanbe, Tajikistan's pleasant capital, middle-class Tajiks are more likely to talk to each other in Russian than in Tajik.

In communist times, Russian was taught in Soviet schools as the "language of communication between nationalities". For any ambitious student, especially in more far-flung parts of the Soviet Union, Russian was an essential springboard to a good university education and professional career.

Critics question the wisdom of relegating Russian to a third tier, pointing out that the quality of English teaching in Georgia and other independent post-Soviet countries is often very poor.

At the university, Chokhonelidze laments the passing of an era, and the generations brought up on reading Pushkin, Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. "I fear in a few years when those grandfathers and grandmothers aren't around, nobody will bother."

The answer, said 20-year-old mathematics student Nugzar Barbakadze, is simple: "I can read Russian books in Georgian."

History revisited to promote tolerance in Georgian classrooms
Quote:


Georgia has seen a fair number of attempts to revise its ristory. Whether by adding or removing statues of Stalin in the night, or through the writing and rewriting of textbooks for younger generations, politics has played an important role in amending history and in crafting popular memory. However this time, a project called Tolerance Building through History Education in Georgia, will attempt to promote a new understanding of history in schools throughout the country.

To this end, an international team is working on 28 worksheets which will emphasize Georgia’s multicultural and multiethnic background, and delve into aspects of 20th century history which are often overlooked or ignored by modern Georgian textbooks. High school teachers throughout the country will have access to these worksheets and will be able to integrate the new material into their classes on a voluntary basis.

The project, which was developed and funded in 2008 by EUROCLIO (The European Association of History Educators) and the Netherlands MATRA program, is in its final stage of implementation. The worksheets, which are the result of the combined effort of academics, teachers, and education experts together with the Georgian Ministry of Education and GAHE (Georgian Association of History Educators), will be ready by March 2011.

“The main problem is that history textbooks are not very good and are not popular in schools,” said Nana Tsikhistavi, one of the EUROCLIO project coordinators and a lecturer at I. Chavchavadze State University, “students are not adequately taught history today. They don’t like history.”

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, former Soviet republics such as Georgia have been struggling to find a balance in schools between promoting national identity and teaching the value of multiculturalism. While textbooks and curricula 20 years ago were entirely dictated by Moscow without taking individual national identities into consideration, textbooks and school materials in Georgia today appear to have become increasingly ethnocentric.

The problem is not limited to Georgia. A study conducted by EUROCLIO in 2004 found that a significant number of schools across Europe and other former Soviet countries espouse a more traditional and nationalistic approach to history teaching. The values of critical thinking and text analysis have often been supplanted by a more glamorous parade of national heroes.

In an ethnically diverse country such as Georgia, an ethnocentric approach to history would only exacerbate tensions among minorities. A significant percentage of the population in the country is in fact of Armenian, Azeri, and Russian origin and many ethnic communities risk remaining historically and culturally isolated. Many of these groups, especially in rural areas, have their own schools and do not even speak Georgian fluently. Due to political tensions and the violent conflicts between Georgia and Russia, and Armenia and Azerbaijan, peaceful cohabitation within the country can be extremely difficult.

In order to address these issues, the worksheets will emphasize the contributions of ethnic minorities to Georgian history and culture and will focus on four distinct areas which have been widely overlooked — religion, multiethnic Georgia, migration, and family life. In order to promote bilingual education, the editing team is also having the texts translated into Armenian, Azeri, and Russian. According to the project manager, Giorgi Abramishvili, the worksheets will attempt to portray how Georgians lived together in the 1900s.

The worksheets, intended for 10th and 11th grade students, combine a colorful layout with a collection of texts and primary sources which illustrate different points of view. The material is also designed to give teachers enough freedom for a creative and personal approach to the subject.

“[The worksheets are] very much in line with the EUROCLIO methodology, which is always based on a bottom-up approach,” said Patrick Barker, one of the project’s managers. “This is to empower educators to develop their own materials, because then at the end of the project they should have a sense of ownership of the product, which ensures that it will be really used and it won’t just be an expert’s guide on how to teach.”

Teachers as well as students throughout Georgia, who have been experimenting with the project’s materials before they are rolled out next year, have given largely enthusiastic responses to a questionnaire on their experiences. Teachers and students appear to agree that Georgian schools should take a more multicultural approach to the history curriculum.

“During and after the Soviet Era we were teaching only the political history of Georgia,” said Manana Shekiladze, a history teacher at the European School in Tbilisi and one of the founders of GAHE. “We had no idea about the everyday life of our ethnic groups.” Through this project and other schemes promoted by GAHE, Shekiladze believes that the situation will change. “In general, we Georgians are rewriting history from the beginning,” she said.

Through a new multicultural approach to history, members of the team strive to develop a range of skills in students, including critical thinking and the ability to include different perspectives into historical analysis, skills which are of vital importance for younger generations living in a democracy. Especially in post-Soviet republics such as Georgia, where political strife has led to outbreaks of violence, members of the EUROCLIO project hope students will learn to respect other cultures and to live peacefully among them.

Barker, who is involved in fundraising as well as assisting the editing team, hopes this project will lead to a more peaceful future. “Tolerance is not only agreement; it’s the willingness to accept,” he said.

Georgia opens its Confucius Institute
Quote:


TBILISI, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- The South Caucasus country of Georgia on Friday opened its Confucius Institute to enhance the country's Chinese teaching and learning capability.

The Georgian Confucius Institute has already started its first class of 12 students who get three lectures a week to begin with. The management of the Georgian Confucius Institute is planning to open enrollment to include applicants from outside the Georgian Free University, which plays host to the Confucius Institute.

The Lanzhou University of China is the collaborator of the Georgian Confucius Institute, which is among the 554 Confucius Institutes or Confucius Classes so far opened in 88 countries and regions across the world.

Georgian Deputy Education Minister Nodar Surguladze attended the opening ceremony of the Georgian Confucius Institute. Also present were Chinese ambassador to Georgia Chen Jianfu, Georgian Free University President Kakha Bendukidze and Rector Guram Chikovani as well as Chinese Lanzhou University Deputy Rector Jing Tao.

Deputy Minister Surguladze described language teaching and learning at the opening ceremony as the key to opening the door to country-to-country exchanges while the Chinese ambassador agreed by saying that language is the medium for inter-culture and inter- civilization communications.

The Georgian Free University has a history in Chinese language teaching and learning. It already boasts of four Georgian professors and lecturers of the Chinese language.

The graduates from the university have just started a teaching program of the Georgian language in the Peking University in China.

Education Minister presents innovations for new academic semester

Quote:
The Minister of Education and Science of Georgia Mr. Dimitri Shashkini held a meeting with representatives of the education system and talked about the new developments in the sector. The meeting was attended by Heads of Educational Resource Centers, School Principals, teachers and schoolchildren. Minister briefly summed up the activities of the year and thoroughly discussed the future plans.
One of the innovations that were discussed during the meeting was a new system of school financing - lump sum financing model . New formula was created according to which all public schools will have equal conditions despite of their location. From 2011 school voucher financing will be increased by 44 million GEL through optimization of administrative expenses of the ministry. No schools will have budget deficit.
In accordance with the new model, all schools will have some sources for school infrastructure development which in turn will make them independent and contribute to the process of decentralization.
The new formula is calculated per pupil and fully meets the needs of unified national curriculum and other school requirements. It was developed by the experts of USAID, school principals and local specialists.

Соответствующий меморандум подписали в пятницу министр образования и науки Грузии Дмитрий Шашкин и президент Федерации тенниса Лейла Месхи.Федерация тенниса обеспечит школы соответствующим инвентарем и поможет с организацией спортивных соревнований.Как известно, в Грузии в 2010-2011 учебном году были отменены уроки физкультуры, вместо которых были введены уроки спорта. Каждая школа имеет возможность выбрать виды спорта по желанию. По данным Минобразования, наиболее популярными в школах являются футбол, баскетбол и волейбол.

According to the document, Georgian State Agrarian University on the base of Faculty of Food Technologies will form culinary courses. Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development will transfer free contemporary kitchen equipment.

The cook training courses will start on the base of Food Product Technologies Faculty. Where students will master the profession with contemporary training program. This contemporary equipment is necessary for students to pass the training practices. During the training practices mostly will be used ecologycally safe products, which grow at University eqperimental station. Besides, one can taste a dish at Univerity cafeteria.
Georgian State Agrarian University is committed to the newly opened culinary courses will prepare free of charge the citizens, who are below the poverty line.

“The culinary training courses will prepare professional cooks. They will be employed in leading restaurants and there job in Georgia will appreciate as well as abroad, Where culinary is one of the most important part of tourism. Not less important is the social side of our decision. In particular, a new profession will be available for at every layer of our society. We expect a great interest from small income citizens. For whom it is very important to master a new profession absolutely free of charge. I call, all our citizens to use this opportunity and learn a new profession at Agrarian University culinary courses,-“Vera Kobalia said.

For me it was very important, when the President approved the idea to give this kitchen equipment to the culinary school. The main cause for this decision, was that especially our citizens, who have small income, including refugees, at the expense of the state could get a new profession, afterwards use this knowledge for the benefit of his family and country,-“Vera Kobalia said.

Education Minister opens new professional centre
13.06.11
Minister of Education and Science of Georgia Dimitri Shashkini opened a new learning center at the Vocational College `Ikarosi`. The center prepares elevator electro- mechanics. This is a demanded profession of the labor market.
There are up to 10 00 elevators in the living blocks of Tbilisi, 1000-in Kutaisi, 1500 in Adjara Region, up to 1000 in Zugdidi, Poti, as well as in Kakheti and Kartli regions. In total, there are 15 000 elevators in living blocks and different buildings around Georgia. At the same time, escalators and carousels are also in need of repair.
The state program envisages undertaking rehabilitation of the elevators. Nevertheless, the persons who are engaged in repairing of the elevators, carousels and escalators lack a theoretical knowledge.
The Vocational College `Ikarosi` in collaboration with the foreign and Georgian experts developed a standard and learning course of the elevator electro-mechanics. The program course will be supervised by experienced and leading specialists in this field to prepare professional personnel. This in turn will ensure a safety of the population.
Currently, more than 277 students study at “Ikarosi” and pursue various programs in tourism and service sectors.
