What is your vision on education policy? What kind of policy do you support for improving the quality of primary, secondary, professional and higher education?

We will develop a concept of continuous education that will also create a basis of the common law on education; we will modify the school, university, professional and pre-school education content (standards, programs, books) by adopting the national concept and educational goals (doctrine):

  • A new model for educational systems will be created;
  • A management scheme for education will be established;
  • Inspection and methodical services will be established for the educational system;
