Uzbekistan Today (English) - - SOCIAL INSIDER -

To­day, more than 400,000 teach­ers work in the in­sti­tu­tions of the Min­istry of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion and more than 5.2 mil­lion chil­dren are study­ing. Pro­ceed­ing from the Ad­dress of the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan to the Oliy Ma­jlis, large-scale works are now be­ing car­ried out in th­ese in­sti­tu­tions aimed at fur­ther im­prov­ing their ac­tiv­i­ties.

“Build­ing on the Ad­dress of the head of state to the Oliy Ma­jlis, and in ac­cor­dance with the Strat­egy of Ac­tions, the Min­istry has de­vel­oped a roadmap aimed at im­prov­ing the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion and up­bring­ing,” said Min­is­ter of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion Ulug­bek Inoy­a­tov in an in­ter­view with our cor­re­spon­dent. “In it, spe­cial at­ten­tion is paid to the con­struc­tion of new ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, the re­con­struc­tion of ex­ist­ing ones. To im­prove the con­di­tions for stu­dents to re­ceive qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, 21 new gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion schools are planned, with the ex­pec­ta­tion of 67,500 pupils, re­con­struc­tion of 221 and a ma­jor re­con­struc­tion of 93 schools. It is planned to pro­vide 672 schools (in­clud­ing 335, where con­struc­tion and in­stal­la­tion works will be car­ried out, and 337 are subject to retrofitting), 51,858 sets of stu­dent’s desks, 225 sets of teach­ing and lab­o­ra­tory equip­ment for physics, chem­istry and bi­ol­ogy, sports equip­ment for 41 sports halls. In ad­di­tion, in 2018, it is planned to pro­vide 2,859 sec­ondary schools with loans from the Ex­im­bank of the Repub­lic of Korea, 1,303 from the grant funds of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China, 412 sets of com­puter equip­ment for grant funds from the Global Part­ner­ship in Ed­u­ca­tion.”

It is planned to im­prove the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion through the wide in­tro­duc­tion in the ed­u­ca­tional process of ad­vanced for­eign ex­pe­ri­ence, in­no­va­tive meth­ods of teach­ing and in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies, the pub­li­ca­tion of 9.7 mil­lion text­books for stu­dents of the 11th grade.

The fo­cus is on vo­ca­tional train­ing for stu­dents in grades 10-11. It is planned to pro­vide 489 cab­i­nets of train­ing and pro­duc­tion com­plexes with the nec­es­sary in­ven­tory.

The de­vel­op­ment of the con­cept of pri­or­ity events for 2018-2022 will be aimed at in­creas­ing the ef­fi­ciency of the work of the chil­dren’s Barkamol Avlod Cen­ters. The fi­nal stage of sports games for school­child­ren Umid Ni­u­mol­lari-2018 will be held on the ground in 21 sports as Hol­i­day of Youth and Sports.

- The coun­try switched to 11year ed­u­ca­tion. How is the work to pro­vide stu­dents of the 10th grade with text­books and teach­ers is go­ing?

- Of the 467,000 stu­dents who grad­u­ated in the last aca­demic year, 9th grades, al­most 70% are now en­rolled in the 10th grade. For pupils of 10-11th grades, based on the pri­or­ity di­rec­tions of the de­vel­op­ment of so­ci­ety on the ba­sis of the opin­ions of sci­en­tists, prac­ti­cal teach­ers and the gen­eral pub­lic, the cur­ric­ula for 12 gen­eral ed­u­ca­tional sub­jects have been newly de­vel­oped, cer­tain changes have been made. Thus, along with train­ing more than 50 pro­fes­sions, the younger gen­er­a­tion will study the subject “Fun­da­men­tals of En­trepreneur­ship”.

Ac­cord­ing to the cur­ric­ula, 9 mil­lion text­books were pub­lished for stu­dents of the 10th grade in 18 gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion dis­ci­plines in 7 lan­guages. They were de­liv­ered to all re­gions. The de­vel­op­ment of th­ese text­books at­tracted ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers, ped­a­gog­i­cal sci­en­tists and method­ol­o­gists.

In con­nec­tion with the in­tro­duc­tion of 11-year ed­u­ca­tion, the ques­tion was acute: Who will teach?. To solve this prob­lem, joint work was car­ried out with the rel­e­vant min­istries and de­part­ments. In or­der to meet the emerg­ing need for per­son­nel, 9,526 grad­u­ates of higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, more than 12 thou­sand teach­ers, whose aca­demic hours were re­duced in aca­demic lyceums and pro­fes­sional col­leges, were ac­cepted for work. To train teach­ers of the 10th grades, train­ing sem­i­nars were held, where 90,000 teach­ers, 2,500 work­ers with­out a pro­file ed­u­ca­tion, and re­train­ing cour­ses were up­graded.

To meet the de­mand for per­son­nel on the ground, the Tashkent Re­gional Chirchik State Ped­a­gog­i­cal In­sti­tute was es­tab­lished, where 750 stu­dents were ad­mit­ted. Also, the Ter­mez branch of the Nizami Tashkent State Ped­a­gog­i­cal Univer­sity, the De­nau branch of Ter­mez State Univer­sity was opened. At the same time, at spe­cial cor­re­spon­dence de­part­ments of 15 uni­ver­si­ties for more than 9 thou­sand teach­ers with sec­ondary spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion, it be­came pos­si­ble to ob­tain higher ed­u­ca­tion.

- The head of state re­peat­edly noted the im­por­tance of ed­u­cat­ing the younger gen­er­a­tion at all times, which be­came even more ur­gent in the 21st cen­tury. What mea­sures are taken in the sys­tem of pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion for co­op­er­a­tion in the up­bring­ing of chil­dren?

- Now the primary or­ga­ni­za­tions of the Union of Youth of Uzbek­istan are func­tion­ing in gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, where so­cial projects are im­ple­mented by the lead­ers on the prin­ci­ple “peer to peer”. Also, their ac­tivists are con­duct­ing var­i­ous cir­cles, whose work is aimed at de­vel­op­ing the in­tel­lec­tual abil­i­ties of stu­dents. On a com­pletely dif­fer­ent qual­ity level, book hol­i­days are held in primary, events and com­pe­ti­tions in grades 5-9.

In the coun­try there are 211 chil­dren’s Barkamol Avlod Cen­ters, where 130,304 pupils study the ba­sics of pro­fes­sions in 5,068 hobby clubs. 12,792 kids come from low-in­come fam­i­lies, 1,970 are from Mehri­bon­lik homes, 342 are chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties.

Par­ent­ing is a process that re­quires joint ef­forts. If we work in close co­op­er­a­tion, first of all, with par­ents, ma­hal­las and other or­ga­ni­za­tions, this will cer­tainly bear fruit. And the con­di­tions are grad­u­ally be­ing cre­ated. Only ded­i­ca­tion is required of us.
