Several days ago the students of Hrachya Acharyan declared a strike. The reason –raise of annual education fee with about $200. University rector Avag Khachatryan did not receive the students alleging illness. A1+ reporters also failed in meeting him; even the secretary was absent.
During the meeting with the university pro-rector the latter explained that the raise of the fee is conditioned by the currency exchange. In his words, over the economic problems the university is not able to cover the expenses. However the pro-rector pointed out that only 20% of the students are discontent with the fee.
Without receiving answers to their questions the students made for the government building to hand a message to the RA Prime Minister.
On hearing the students’ complaints the members of the department of education of the RA government said that the university is beyond their authority. However they promised to have a talk with the rector.
The students then went to the Ministry of Education and Science and afterwards returned to the university. However they refuse to attend lessons until results are achieved.
