Slovak education bosses are turning back to a communist education lesson to teach children to be prepared for war.
As of the second half of this school year, Slovak children will again be taught to "be ready" in case of attack from a foreign enemy.
Education Minister Milan Ftáčnik, of the former-communist SDĽ party, said October 27 that branna vychova or 'defence education' would be back on the curriculum 12 years after communism fell in Czechoslovakia.
The lessons are being brought back into schools in the wake of growing fears worldwide over germ warfare.
