Bishkek, May 16, 2018 / Kabar /. Currently, 55% of the republic's schools have access to the Internet, Minister of Education Gulmira Kudaiberdieva told at a meeting with Prime Minister Muhammedkaliy Abylgaziev.
"Providing all schools with the Internet will allow solving a number of problems, including the provision of educational materials, conducting remote "open lessons", courses to improve skills and consultations on the use of the latest teaching methods," she said.
The Education Ministers said that one of the achievements is that with the support of the World Bank from the new academic year, pupils of grades 5 and 6 will be provided with the necessary set of textbooks by 100%.
"Practice shows that textbooks need to be updated every 5 years. At the same time, the state needs to allocate about 500 million soms for the publication of new textbooks every year," the minister explained.
Prime Minister Abylgayev stressed that the education sector will be given special attention so that the Ministry can solve the primary tasks, including the provision of computer equipment, textbooks, as well as the development of vocational education in the regions.
In addition, Abylgaziev instructed the Ministry of Education and Science to work out the issue of opening a publishing house that will publish textbooks and educational literature using modern technologies.
