INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF UPBRINGING OF EDUCATED AND INTELLECTUALLY ADVANCED GENERATION AS THE MOST IMPORTANT CONDITION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND MODERNIZATION OF THE COUNTRY
Uzbek Model of Education: Looking to the Future, Meeting Modern Requirements Participants of the international conference “Fostering a Well Educated and Intellectually Advanced Generation – Critical Prerequisite for Sustainable Development and Modernization of Country” on February 16 traveled to general schools, professional colleges, universities in Tashkent and familiarized with tangible effects of ongoing educational reforms and conditions created for students. National News Agency of Uzbekistan (UzA) reporter has had a talk with some of the guests. Mohd Ridzuan bin Haji Mohd Shariff, Deputy Director of the Institute of Diplomacy and International Relations, Malaysia: “First and foremost, I have taken note of the rich technical equipment and material affluence of schools and the high level of training standards among students. The international conference we are attending proves rather important in the sense that we have a first-hand opportunity to study the accomplishments of Uzbekistan in many areas, including education, to exchange views and experience with local and other colleagues. Uzbekistan has evidently made great strides toward perfecting the sphere of education that has effectively turned into a robust system, laying all the needed ground for further development and cashing in the quite resourceful indigenous potential.” Peter Vorobienko, Rector of Odessa National Telecommunications Academy, Ukraine: “I was in Tashkent for the first time in 1997, and now I daresay Uzbekistan has made significant achievements in the field of education during the years of its independent development. The great emphasis placed under the leadership of President Islam Karimov on nurturing a healthy and comprehensively advanced growing generation has been yielding fine results. In fact, a new system of education has been created here in this country. I previously was familiar merely with the higher education system in Uzbekistan, and now, thanks to this symposium, I am delighted to get closely acquainted with the entire educational system along with the National Program for Specialist Training. Education institutions here are afforded tremendous material and technical base to stimulate the learning process. The awe-inspiring education of children, their activity and the desire to learn and study is noteworthy. Education, a key factor in determining the level and development of social consciousness, shapes the spiritual and ethical state of the people. It is hard to raise the level of spiritual wealth without transforming the education system that would look to the future.” Dr Richard Harvey, dean at the University of East Anglia, United Kingdom: “A good deal of consideration placed on education is crucial in upbringing highly qualified specialists for all sectors of economy. In Uzbekistan, high results are attained by wide-scale efforts directed at consolidating the economic and technical capacities of education institutions, providing them with latest methods and technologies and creating a conducive environment for the youth to acquire profound knowledge. Of great importance is the high intellectual potential of the Uzbek students. The effectiveness of wide-ranging reforms in all spheres of society depends primarily on the level of spiritual state of the people, the development of science and education, and crucially the transformation in the way of thinking. To ensure a steadfast development of any country is by and large contingent on the highly qualified specialists. This issue is addressed in Uzbekistan with remarkable success. Ongoing education reforms in Uzbekistan deserve high appreciation. This model is designed to set up a completely new system of education, created in a brief period of time and catering to modern requirements as well as those of distant prospects.” Rosario De La Cruz Lopez, director of Mirabal College, Spain: “I visited the school no.69 in Tashkent. I especially liked the classrooms with the necessary conditions and laboratory instruments and reagents. I got delighted with a mathematics lesson, which was not only informative but also fun – indicative of the highly qualified teachers. The learning process is highly organized here in this country at large, at vocational college of hotel management and service in particular, where I encountered a high level of teaching and learning.” (Source: UzA News Agency)
