BISHKEK, October 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The demand for Russian-language education is growing in Kyrgyzstan, President Rosa Otunbayeva told pedagogues in Bishkek on Tuesday.
At the same time, Kyrgyzstan has a deficit of pedagogues teaching their students in Russian. “The language policy remains a key problem in the modern school of Kyrgyzstan. The official Russian language remains the language of business and economics. However, we cannot forget about the state Kyrgyz language either,” she said.
It would be problematic to reach harmony and concord in Kyrgyzstan without a correct language policy, the president said.
Another problem of education in Kyrgyzstan is its low level, Otunbayeva said. “We need drastic reforms, because the quality of education remains low. We must orient school graduates at certain professions, as we have a deficit of personnel in agriculture, transport and industries,” she said.
“It appeared that 1,972 children did not go to school in Kyrgyzstan this year. We must find out why children do not go to school and give every child an access to quality education,” Otunbayeva said.
