You're reading: Vox Populi with Olga Rudenko: What should be changed in Ukraine’s education system?

Alexey Parnovskiy, head of laboratory in Space Research Institute

“The first priority is to change education in schools. Students there must be taught how to learn. Unfortunately, schools now produce graduates of very questionable quality. I lecture in the university, and all the first year we have to just repeat the whole school program, and even then the result is not so good. That is the seat of the trouble. Second problem is newly implemented limits for the quantity of the classes (in college). When I was studying, we had five or six classes every day, and four classes on Saturday. Now there are three classes per day. It is nearly impossible to profess humanities with such time limits.”

Alisa Kolpachikova, university student
