Education as a development priority determines the development of the Kyrgyz Republic. Globalization processes and other changes at a global level have caused each country to recognize the need for sustainable development. The development of any country is directly dependent on human resources, and this, in turn, urgently requires the establishment of a modern education system in said country.
In 2015, the UN General Assembly passed the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, adopting the goal to guarantee every person the opportunity to receive quality education in life. The document notes that the world of the future is one of universal literacy, in which everyone is given the same opportunity to develop their abilities and has the same access to get an adequate education.
In recent years, in order to develop education in accordance with modern requirements, a number of important documents have been developed and adopted in the Kyrgyz Republic, including “Concept for the development of education in the Kyrgyz Republic until 2020”, “Strategy for the development of education in the Kyrgyz Republic in 2012-2020”, “State educational standards of general education schools”, “Development Program for 2018 – 2022. Unity. Confidence. Creation”, and ” National Strategy of the Kyrgyz Republic for 2018 – 2040″.
In these documents, strategic directions for the development of education were identified, including: the formation of students’ competencies, the implementation of student-centered learning, the construction of an informative education system using information technologies, the exchange of information at the managerial level, improving the quality of education through the development of the regions, among others.
The proposed concept of education development in the Kyrgyz Republic by 2030 was created based on the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic entitled “On Education” and on the above documents, with the aim of deepening the main principles found in them. In the Kyrgyz Republic, education aims to develop human resource capacities as well as accomplish two large-scale undertakings. First, preservation and further development of national and cultural identities, national values, and diversity in the context of globalization. Second, integration into the world educational system by taking into account the coming together of the patterns of globalization and national identity. In this process, the issues of educating the younger generation on the basis of national values and determining the level of knowledge that students achieve in different levels of education should prevail.
The concept contains theoretical, methodological and organizational provisions and directions that contribute to the achievement of the above goals.
