The Education Ministry elaborated new program on foreign literature for pupils of 5th -9th grades.

 

The program consists of modern literary works, including fantasy; a part of classical literature was removed. Representatives of Education Ministry note that a project was created with a goal to modernize a course of foreign literature, Segodnya newspaper reports.

Now instead of “Faust” and “The Divine Comedy” pupils will read “Harry Potter” and “The Alchemist”.

Some teachers are indignant at future innovations and they have already written a letter to the Education Minister with a request to review this program.
