UFA, 16 August 2019. /Bashinform News Agency, Azat Gizatullin/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
Acting Head of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, speaking today at the republican teacher’s council, said that the five-day school week was introduced so that children would grow up not only smart but also healthy and happy.
“Today, new points of growth are created in the education system, “quantoriums” are emerging so that our graduates will be intellectually developed and strong. Our children should leave school not just stuffed with knowledge, but being healthy, happy citizens. Therefore, from this school year, we are moving to a five-day school week. They still criticize me, but children should have time to do something useful, spend time with parents, sleep for two days instead of one”, said Radiy Khabirov.
In his opinion, now, it is time to stop going into the rant about the fact that our graduates are leaving to enter the capital's universities.
“It should be put another way. What can we do to ensure that these graduates who receive the best education will return to work here? ”, the head of the region said.
He also marked that he would be ready to reward teachers prepared students who passed the exam with 100 points.
