On Tuesday, the Russian president’s authorized representative for child rights, Anna Kuznetsova, announced the completion of the development of the school course “Family Studies.”
During the press conference, Kuznetsova explained that the course was developed at the Russian Academy of Education, and negotiations were also held about its implementation with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.
Experts have not yet determined the final form of such a course in schools; an optional lesson or modular courses within existing humanitarian subjects.
Kuznetsova expressed the idea of creating a course called “Family Studies” or “Lessons of Family Happiness” this summer. So, according to her proposal, classes should be aimed at promoting traditional family values and promote the protection of motherhood and childhood.
