Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE - Igor Ch­ernykh

The na­tion widely cel­e­brated the Teacher’s and Men­tor’s Day on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1.

On the eve of the na­tional hol­i­day, the out­stand­ing ped­a­gogues of Uzbek­istan’s ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, sci­en­tists, en­light­en­ment ac­tivists, as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the gen­eral pub­lic were in­vited to the cap­i­tal Tashkent. Meet­ings, fo­rums and con­fer­ences were held to dis­cuss the im­prove­ment in the qual­ity of teach­ing, nur­tur­ing the younger gen­er­a­tion as wor­thy suc­ces­sors of our great an­ces­tors.

The fes­tive events cul­mi­nated in the Turk­iston Palace in the heart of Tashkent at a solemn oc­ca­sion timed to the Teacher’s and Men­tor’s Day. The grand meet­ing was at­tended by sen­a­tors, lower house deputies, of­fi­cials of the min­istries of pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion, higher and se­condary spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion, cul­ture, Heroes of Uzbek­istan, in­struc­tors of higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, gen­eral schools, aca­demic lyceums and pro­fes­sional col­leges, sport­ing coaches.

The con­grat­u­la­tory mes­sage of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev to the teach­ers and men­tors of the coun­try was read out at the event by the State Ad­vi­sor to the Pres­i­dent Khairid­din Sul­tanov.

Those who spoke at the oc­ca­sion noted that the Strat­egy of Ac­tions out­lines pri­or­ity ob­jec­tives of the na­tion for per­fect­ing the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, erect­ing new and re­con­struct­ing the avail­able ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, ex­pand­ing the sys­tem of preschool ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, and rad­i­cally im­prov­ing the qual­ity of gen­eral se­condary ed­u­ca­tion.

Com­plete pro­vi­sion for the con­form­ity of learn­ing and ed­u­ca­tional re­forms to the goals and as­pi­ra­tions of our peo­ple, es­pe­cially par­ents, teach­ers, stu­dents, is an im­por­tant fac­tor in in­creas­ing the in­ter­est of stu­dents in ob­tain­ing knowl­edge, pro­tect­ing them from var­i­ous ide­o­log­i­cal threats. These as­pects are man­i­fest in the or­ga­ni­za­tion of the 10th grade from the new aca­demic year, cre­at­ing ex­ten­sive op­por­tu­ni­ties for con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion in school, col­lege or lyceum.

On the ba­sis of leg­isla­tive acts elab­o­rated and en­acted, con­sis­tent ef­forts are un­der­taken to up­lift the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion, train highly qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists in ac­cor­dance with mar­ket re­quire­ments, ex­pand the net­work of pre-school ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, and im­prove their con­di­tions for the com­pre­hen­sive devel­op­ment of chil­dren.

Par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion is paid to train­ing highly qual­i­fied per­son­nel for se­condary schools, es­pe­cially in re­mote ar­eas, and the use of op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­tracur­ric­u­lar stud­ies. The es­tab­lish­ment of the Tashkent Re­gional Ped­a­gog­i­cal In­sti­tute in Chirchik has be­come yet another prac­ti­cal step to­wards school­ing the ped­a­gog­i­cal staff and the sat­is­fac­tion of their needs in the field.

The prac­ti­cal pro­pos­als put for­ward by the head of our state at the 72nd ses­sion of the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly on the ed­u­ca­tion and up­bring­ing of the younger gen­er­a­tion, up­hold­ing their rights and in­ter­ests are another prac­ti­cal ev­i­dence of the great at­ten­tion be­ing paid to youth in our coun­try. Based on an­a­lyt­i­cal and aca­demic sur­vey, these ideas and ini­tia­tives boost up the re­spon­si­bil­ity of our coun­try’s ed­u­ca­tors for fos­ter­ing the younger gen­er­a­tion.

Un­der a de­cree by the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try, signed 27 Septem­ber 2017, a group of par­tic­u­larly dis­tin­guished rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem was awarded hon­orary ti­tles, na­tional or­ders and medals.

Dur­ing the fes­tive event in Turk­iston Palace, win­ners of the con­test “The Teacher of the Year”, con­ducted by the Min­istry of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion, “The Teacher of Higher Ed­u­ca­tional In­sti­tu­tions of the Year”, or­ga­nized by the Min­istry of Higher and Se­condary Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion, as well as the best teach­ers of se­condary spe­cial­ized and pro­fes­sional ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions were awarded with di­plo­mas and prizes.

At the end of the meet­ing the par­tic­i­pants were pre­sented with a con­cert pro­gram by celebrity mu­si­cians and young per­form­ers.
