Education Conference Targets Changing Armenian American Identity

GLENDALE–Armenian Schools of North America have a history dating back more than forty years.

With the challenges of the 21st century–however–it has become imperative to reassess the mission of Armenian education along with the Armenian-American cultural identity in Armenian schools.

Thus–in order to re-examine the mission of Armenian education in North America in the context of the changing "Armenian-American Identity," the Board of Regents of Prelacy Armenian Schools will hold a two-day conference June 4-5 at Woodbury University in Burbank.

The Board’s goal in initiating the conference is to spark valuable dialogue among community educators and experts–and to insure that the education offered correspond to current expectations and imperatives.

All Armenian daily schools and their leaders are invited to participate and offer their expertise. Well-known professionals and experts on "Armenian-American Cultural Identity" issues will either present lectures or participate as panelists.

Sessions of the conference are open to the public–and the Board believes that those involved in the field of education can bring their valuable contribution as well as benefit by participating.

For further information–contact the Board of Regents office 818-500-0822–fax 818-500-0622–or email boardofregents@aol.com.
