In the Address to the People of Kazakhstan “Growing Welfare of Kazakh Citizens: Increase in Income and Quality of Life,” the President noted that the methods and standards of education in Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools should become the single standard for the country's public schools. According to the vice minister, the transmission of NIS experience has already begun in 2016. The entire system of secondary education has switched to updated content.

“We have a gradual transition: 1st, 2nd, 5th and 7th grades were engaged, now 3rd, 6th and 8th grades have been transferred. Until 2021, we will have completed the entire phased transition to the updated curriculum, and in 2021 all classes will proceed in stages and will graduate with the updated curriculum. The format has been completely revised: we have trained teachers, a new criterion assessment system has been introduced,” said Sukhanberdiyeva.

At the same time, the vice minister of education noted the importance of solving the issue of school psychologists, of which there are now more than 7,000 in the country.

“We will create a separate group that will address the issue of school psychologists. The question is very serious and it has long been overdue. Psychologists have a huge burden. In our country, according to the standards for one psychologist, we have a class-kit, which is not quite right. Now we have begun to revise the standards,” Sukhanberdiyeva stressed.

The vice minister informed that in Almaty there are only 708 students per psychologist, and in Astana — 1,200.

“Now we also allocate funds to organize courses, attract foreign experts, create a large program in order to properly and competently train our teachers, unload and direct it to ensure that we have a good psychological climate in schools,” added Sukhanberdiyeva.

Also in his Address, the Head of State, in order to increase the availability of education, instructed the Government to provide 2019–2021 additional 50 billion tenge from the republican budget for regions experiencing the greatest shortage of student places and problems with three-shift and emergency schools.

Vice Minister of Education and Science Bibigul Assylova noted that the issue of three-shift schools is being solved within 7-10 years.

“The republican budget allocates significant amounts of financing for construction, but due to demographic growth and the development of large agglomerations, the problem of three-shift schools remains, especially in urban areas,” said Assylova.

According to her, the largest number of three-shift schools in Almaty region. As part of the allocated funds for the three-year period in the Almaty region it is planned to build two schools.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
