Process of learning public opinion on draft textbooks ends

The process of learning public opinion on drafts of improved editions of textbooks for first and fifth grades as well as drafts of new textbooks for 9th grade has ended.

Launched in February 2016, the project saw draft textbooks uploaded on www.e-resurs.edu.az, where they were available for reviews and proposals. A total of 77 draft textbooks were uploaded on the website, which received 1544 reviews and proposals. 91 per cent of reviews were made on drafts of 9th grade textbooks, 6 per cent on drafts of 5th grade textbooks and 3 per cent on drafts of 1st grade textbooks.

The draft of Azerbaijani language textbook obtained the highest number of reviews (13.3 per cent) among drafts of 9th grade textbooks. The draft of French language textbook got the lowest number (0.1 per cent) of reviews.

The reviews and proposals featured approving and critical opinions. All reviews and proposals were brought to the notice of publishing and printing houses that made the draft textbooks. Based on these proposals, the publishing houses and authors made relevant corrections to draft textbooks. Some opinions were rejected by the publishing houses and authors.

We thank everyone who contributed to the process of learning public opinion on draft textbooks.
