Criminal world, extremist movements make school subject to its influence in Kyrgyzstan: Kyrgyz president
The criminal world and extremist movements have made a school subject to its influence in Kyrgyzstan, President Kurmanbek Bakiyev stated on June 10, referring to the officials, 24.kg news agency reported.
The Government House is sounding the concept of reforms in education, which is proposed by the head of state.
The Kyrgyz president said " the use of our cultural heritage is a fundamentally important to build the country's future. This demand significantly changes the task of humanitarian education."
All developed countries focus on building an education system that enables people to learn, improve and change their skills throughout their lives. This is required by a rapidly changing labor market and global competition. Every people's prospects are provided only in this system. Meanwhile, there is not this task amongst key reform tasks in our country," Bakiyev said.
"There are new threats that had previously been excluded in the education system of the Soviet school: the criminal world and extremist movements have made a school subject to its influence, and it is not late yet to respond to this threat," the head of state said.
The Kyrgyz president believes that "it is necessary to carefully and objectively look at the Soviet system of education that we have left of it, and use the experience, which is consistent with our values and objectives." The ultimate criterion for the success of educational reform should be to improve the safety and competitiveness of the state, as well as the quality of life of citizens, he said.
