Uzbek­istan to cel­e­brate the Teacher’s and Men­tor’s Day

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

These days, fes­tive events are in full swing in our coun­try on the oc­ca­sion of the Day of Teach­ers and Men­tors, marked in Uzbek­istan on the first day of Oc­to­ber. The ed­u­ca­tors re­ceive con­grat­u­la­tions in the form of ex­ten­sive re­forms in the sphere. This year there are a lot of ini­tia­tives that should make ed­u­ca­tion in our coun­try more qual­i­ta­tive and meet­ing the re­quire­ments of the time.

The tran­si­tion to 11-year school ed­u­ca­tion has been ac­com­plished. As shown in the sur­vey of school leavers on June 18-20, the ab­so­lute ma­jor­ity of them - 352 out of 467 thou­sand, or 75% want to con­tinue their stud­ies in 10th grades in gen­eral schools, as op­posed to aca­demic lyceums and pro­fes­sional col­leges. Thus the schools are en­gaged in de­vel­op­ing new cur­ric­ula, pro­grams and text­books. On the ba­sis of work­shops 615 vo­ca­tional col­leges or­ga­nize pro­duc­tion train­ing com­plexes, where about 7,000 neigh­bor­ing schools are at­tached. And for 2.7 thou­sand ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, which are lo­cated far from col­leges, 1,103 of its com­plexes are be­ing cre­ated. There they will teach lock­smith, forge, sew­ing, culi­nary, hair­dress­ing, em­broi­dery and other spe­cial­ties. To­gether with the cer­tifi­cate of 11-year ed­u­ca­tion, the chil­dren will re­ceive a state-rec­og­nized doc­u­ment that al­lows them to work.

The devel­op­ment of a net­work of pri­vate schools has been launched. In­creas­ing their num­ber, ac­cord­ing to ex­perts, will pro­mote com­pe­ti­tion be­tween pri­vate and pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions and, as a re­sult, im­prove the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion.

For the first time, the devel­op­ment of preschool ed­u­ca­tion has been el­e­vated to the sta­tus of a state pro­gram. Today, on the ini­tia­tive of Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev, the is­sues on the cre­ation of a separate min­istry are be­ing worked out, which would cre­ate con­di­tions that will en­sure the cover­age of all preschool chil­dren by chil­dren's in­sti­tu­tions.

Devel­op­ment and re­ceived a sys­tem of higher ed­u­ca­tion. Along with the trans­for­ma­tions of ex­ist­ing ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, new uni­ver­si­ties have ap­peared in the re­gions. So, for ex­am­ple, in Surkhandarya re­gion, where only one univer­sity was func­tion­ing - Ter­mez State Univer­sity, two more were opened - these are branches of Tashkent agrar­ian and tech­ni­cal uni­ver­si­ties. And the Chirchik Ped­a­gog­i­cal In­sti­tute has re­sumed its ac­tiv­ity.

At the same time, on these hol­i­days, I would like to once again con­grat­u­late our es­teemed and beloved teach­ers and men­tors, who ev­ery day en­ter classes or au­di­ences in or­der to sow rea­son­able, good, eter­nal.
