Daily performance of the Russian anthem in Yakut schools also means listening, that is, sometimes children may not perform the composition. This was stated by head of republic Aisen Nikolaev during a personal reception of citizens, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports with the reference to the Regional Head’s Administration.
The head of Yakutia was addressed by the chairman of Republic Council asked if the anthem daily performance was justified in educational institutions.
Aisen Nikolaev noted that the decree implies not only the performance of the anthem, but also the creation of a comprehensive patriotic program, and the daily performance of the anthem also includes listening. That is, sometimes, instead of singing, children may simply listen to the song.
In his opinion, this practice will lay the foundation for Yakutia anthem performance along with the Russian one in the future.
“Today, our schools believe they should only give knowledge, forgetting about the education of the individual. And this education should go not only through the anthem. From an early age we need to cultivate morality, citizenship, patriotism in children. This should be a big serious program, the implementation of which will involve not only teachers, schoolchildren, but also parents, social activists, all Yakutians,” he said.
Earlier, we reported that Aisen Nikolaev had signed a decree on the project “We Are the Future of Russia”, which means daily performance of the national anthem of Russia in the republic’s schools. This initiative was welcomed by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation.
