Tolerance textbooks will be introduced in Moscow schools; this manual will be called «Ethno-Moscow». The popular newspaper «Izvestia» reported about this the other day. The tutorial will contain information about folk holidays and national traditions that are held in the capital of Russia. Also, from the pages of the textbook, you can learn about all the sights that are on the streets of Moscow, for example, about all the mosques and synagogues. Among other things, the textbook will tell you some biographical facts of famous people of different nationalities who are more or less connected with Moscow..
One of the representatives of the bureaucratic apparatus explained that the textbook was created for the general development of students, the fact is that now most of the students do not even know what Hanukkah, Sabantuy, Navruz and much more are. And it is precisely because of this ignorance that an aggressive attitude towards various ethnic groups appears..
From September 1 of this year, a textbook on tolerance will appear in all Moscow schools. In addition to the textbook, teaching aids for teachers will be published, with detailed recommendations on how best to teach tolerance to modern children. The textbook will also include scenarios of various excursions with a national flavor, for example, «Moscow Tatarskaya». Tolerance will not be an ordinary lesson, it will be taught after school hours, on an optional basis.
It is worth noting that this is not the first time that the authorities of the capital have put forward an idea of this kind. Although, according to the Izvestia newspaper, not many schools accepted this idea with enthusiasm.
