President Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited secondary school No. 32 in Oqdaryo district of Samarkand region.
The Constitution of Uzbekistan provides for the creation of a social state. Accordingly, education is one of the priorities. In addition to building new educational facilities, great importance is attached to improving the content of education.
This year, school No. 32 underwent a major overhaul. The school is designed for 782 pupils. Modern facilities have been created in 22 classrooms, a gym, a canteen, a STEM laboratory and computer science classrooms. The library contains more than 1.5 thousand art books.
As it is known, the main direction of reforms in school education is to teach young people at least two foreign languages and one modern profession. On the unused area of the school additional premises were built from light constructions and conditions were created for teaching 15 different professions. Students receive basic skills in IT, maintenance, weaving, hairdressing, cosmetology, pottery and wood carving.
The President visited these courses and conversed with children attending summer clubs.
"We are expanding the reach of higher education. But not everyone chooses to go to university. Therefore, we aim to ensure that our children start learning foreign languages and professions from school. A person who has mastered at least one profession will not be lost. He can further work on himself and improve his skills. Therefore, our goal is to create decent conditions for every young person," said the President.
