Akims tend to abuse their power in respect of teachers- Tokayev
Astana. August 16. KazTAG - Akims tend to abuse their power in respect of teachers, said Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, President of Kazakhstan.
"The local akims often abuse their power, they involve the teachers in administrative work, different arrangements, which are not related to the system of education," he said at the teacher's conference.
In his words, "in the result of so-called "certifications”, 35% of teachers could not pass the threshold level in 2018 ".
"Such quasi-reforms downgrade prestige of teacher's profession," he said.
He also commented on the suicides among children and adolescents.
"It is a tragedy for all of us. We should think carefully about why children commit this. Formation of solid life attitudes is the base criterion of the quality of educational process," he said.
