On September 1, all classes of Belarusian schools had to have a lesson on the topic "Day of Historical Remembrance".
The day before ,
announced that Lukashenka would come to every school.
According to the results of the survey of parents, Svoboda's correspondent came to the conclusion that Lukashenka was mainly watched by high school students in schools, and students in universities.
In schools, the first lesson on historical memory took place in different ways.
As the teachers told Svaboda, some curators drew up the lesson script and prepared the materials themselves, others took their classes to museums and libraries, held discussions and quizzes on the "set topic".
"High school students were shown Lukashenka, and all three hours of the speech.
The children almost went crazy.
But there was nowhere to go - the "open lesson" was observed not only by class leaders, but sometimes the school director also came, and there were "special people" from the education department.
In some classes, teachers and administrative staff had to replace each other - because it was too long," said one of the teachers.
The mother of a high school student said that in their school, Lukashenka was included only at first, for five minutes, then turned off.
A "Historical Memory Lesson" was held for children, and the genocide was told.
"For middle school students, it wasn't even included, at least that's how it was in our country," said the mother of one of the students.

Reports of students and teachers about how they listened to Lukashenka's speech have already been published in state publications.
In general, everyone is "satisfied" and "happy" that they got to such a lesson.
For example, Anastasia, a first-year student, "is very pleased that he (Lukashenka - RS) pays attention to the first-year students, he is concerned about our questions, and the answers we heard will be useful to us."
