/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Turkish Ministry of Education has prepared
mathematics and introduction to natural science textbooks in Armenian
to be distributed free of charge among Armenian schools, NTV reported.

The decision followed a letter sent to Education Minister Nimet
Cubukcu by a Turkish-Armenian teacher requesting to provide Armenian
schools with textbooks. The request was granted as the ministry
initiated an unprecedented project for the 2011-2012 school year and
assigned the Instruction and Education Institution to translate the
textbooks into Armenian in line with the ministry's curriculum. The
head masters of some Armenian schools were invited to Ankara for
collaboration. According to the final regulation, the textbooks for
first, second and third grades as well as three supplementary exercise
books for each will be translated into Armenian and 2 000 copies will
be made.

In total, 24 000 books will be published for 24 Armenian schools,
18 of them in Istanbul.
