“I consider it necessary to develop and adopt the Law “On Status of Teacher” next year. It should provide all stimuli for teachers and workers of pre-school organizations, reduce the burden, protect them from unforeseen uncharacteristic functions. Nobody pays them for that, they should prepare for lessons”, Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

Also Nazarbayev announced the end of “endless reforms” in the education sphere. A separate block of instructions concerned the safety of children.

“Considering the importance of child safety, I instruct to equip 100 percent of schools and kindergartens with video surveillance systems, to strengthen the work of school psychologists and to implement other measures”, the President instructed.

In addition, the Head of State worried that a lot of students go to study at foreign universities.

Minister of Education and Science Yerlan Sagadiyev replied that studying at foreign higher educational institutions is a global trend.

“This is a global trend. However, only 7 per cent are going to stay abroad, the rest are planning to return”, added Yerlan Sagadiyev.

The President said that the desire of young people to study abroad is an assessment of our higher education.

“This is the assessment of our universities. Students do not trust the quality of education, it’s better to study there. But mostly people leave because they do not trust our academic institutions”, the Head of State concluded.
