Anagnostopoulou: To change the textbooks without “εθνόμετρο”

To change the school history books without the use of “εθνόμετρου”, and… be converted into advisory councils in institutions of HIGHER education, said in an interview in the “Daily” the deputy minister for Education, Sia Anagnostopoulou, which after the months-long collaboration of SYRIZA-ANEL and despite the ideological contrast to the last, expressed positively, to the exclusion of any case of political opportunism.
The minister for school history books indicating that “we need to stop getting into moulds εθνόμετρου the research and the view of scientists about the History and as it is taught in school”. In Greece, continues, a national history is considered to be what some people have imposed. That is, they consider that it is in the national history of the Greeks. For example, marking the asia Minor Disaster as a great historical event, but “it’s not because Greeks are Greeks, with a particular fate, but it is a big national event, because the refugee is a big issue in human history”.
Mrs Anagnostopoulou, presenting the difference of historical and national identity, notes that the nationalist’s “the fury that the exploits of the nation, constitute a national peculiarity”.
He explains that “the nationalist believes that Kolokotronis was because he was a Greek and because the heroism is characteristic of the race, while the historian classifies him as a heroic form of a european period of revolution”.
When it was asked for the secret school notes that “if there was or no regard to the historical research” and that the Orthodox Church had religious schools. Further notes that in the public history of the school as a public good is a product of the nation-state. For the case of Maria Repousi, who had expressed similar views, mrs Anagnostopoulou, he confesses: “I was afraid of the fanaticism that set up a man to the wall with a voltage of isolation as a national traitor”.
In terms of the attitude towards the Boards, the minister responds that they have not done that for which they were appointed (fundraising for institutions), and adds: “In many cases there were anti-democratic, the issue of qualification of candidates rectors. Often unable to meet due to the absence of many of their members abroad, while at the same time within the UNIVERSITIES created a dysfunctional δυαρχία between the dean and the Council”.
