Lukashenko hosts meeting to discuss amendments to Education Code

MINSK (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has hosted a meeting to discuss legislative improvements to the national education system, BelTA has learned.

Back on 24 August, participants of the National Pedagogical Conference had agreed to discuss the new edition of the Education Code and new admission rules to higher learning institutions and professional training colleges at a meeting to be hosted by the head of state. The draft code passed the first reading and is prepared to be discussed in the second reading.

Upon the instruction of the president, representatives of the national education system, both theoreticians and practitioners, as well as experts, were invited to attend the meeting. “It was right to invite specialists from the regions, including from distant areas,” Aleksandr Lukashenko noted.

“Amending the code and admission rules is akin to the adoption of a new Constitution. We and our children will have to live, study and work by them. The most important thing here is not to make things worse,” the head of state emphasized.
