Now on the stage – Sergey Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, Isaak Kalina, Head of the Moscow Department of Education, Elena Shmeleva, Head of Educational Foundation “Talent and success” and Alevtina Chernykova, Rector of NUST MISIS. Speakers discussed what has already been done for the development of Moscow schools and the results are visible!
Waiting lists for school enrolment are disappearing, teachers’ salaries are rising, new equipment was installed at schools, e-school and specialized classes were introduced, the level of pupils preparation is rising, they can easily overcome the unified state exam threshold of 220 points. The competition at the academic competitions is increasing, 228 schools out of a total of 1500 Moscow schools have pupils who are winners and runners-up of all-Russian competitions. Their graduates are the student of the leading Russian universities.
The Mayor of Moscow also said that 1.5 million children will start their education at schools and kindergartens this year. It is the record and also a new challenge! We can not stop! We understand that every child who starts school should receive the knowledge the school offers and even more! Segey Sobyanin said: “ We understand our duty, duty to our teachers and also to boys and girls in Moscow who begin their adult life”.
To summarize I would like to say that we have enough opportunities so we should move only forward! Please attend the forum “City for Education” and give your feedback, tell us what is the school of the future.
