Azerbaijani Education Minister Jeyhun Bayramov has commented on the information on teaching religion in schools, ONA reports.
He said that teaching religion in schools is not envisaged according to the educational standards of Azerbaijan.
According to Minister Bayramov, both the Ministry of Education and the State Committee for Work with Religious Organizations have issued statements on this issue.
“Providing information in different textbooks according to age categories of pupils is not teaching of religion. This can be found both in history and in the “Life Science” textbooks. There is nothing new here,” said J. Bayramov.
