Minister of Education and Science Kulyash Shamshidinova noted that the salary increase for teachers is conducted systematically stage by stage. The wages of low-paid education workers will be raised differentially by up to 30%.
“A salary increase of up to 30% will affect low-wage workers. These are mainly technical personnel of educational institutions and some categories of teachers: kindergarten teachers, teaching assistants, psychologists,” the minister said.
Shamshidinova stressed that the salary increase for teaching staff has been systematically taking place for several years. The minister also informed that this year the Ministry of Education and Science is planning to train school psychologists, currently there are about 7 thousand of them in the republic.
In addition, it is necessary to update curricula in accordance with modern requirements.
“Today we are saying that children do not need information training – when we give ready-made information to children. Therefore, we want the student to be engaged in the process of learning. The teacher should prepare various tasks, questions, and the child should answer them, complete the tasks, and come to an understanding of this or that material. Of course, it is not possible to achieve everything at once, we have to prepare our teachers for this, but we are gradually moving in this direction,” said Shamshidinova.
