MP from Kyrgyzstan parliamentary faction Taalaibek Masabirov proposed to postpone the school year start in schools and universities to October 1. He stated this today at a meeting.
He explained his proposal in such a way: "Agricultural works continue until October, for example, in Bazar-Korgon. And if we postpone the academic year start to September 15, the children will still come to school at the end of September, so it is better to start the study on October 1."
Note, the deputy Dastanbek Dzhumabekov once again proposed to postpone the start of the school year from September 1 to September 15. He explains the necessity for the children to help their parents in harvesting and for teenagers - to earn during the peak season on Issyk-Kul lake.
The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture do not mind. According to the Minister of Education and Science Gulmira Kudaiberdieva, an interdepartmental working group will present competent opinion in 2-3 months on what "the economy will get from it and what representatives of the education system should do."
