Welcoming educational development
Three secondary schools and five kindergartens built in Minsk annually, with the tradition to continue in the future
“This year, 3,600 boys and girls were welcomed at new schools,” explains Minsk City Executive Committee Chairman Nikolai Ladutko. “Simultaneously, educational establishments constructed 40 or 50 years ago have been undergoing reconstruction and modernisation in the capital, with 25 percent of the city budget annually spent on developing education.” At present, almost every school in Minsk has two computer-equipped rooms, with the Minsk Mayor stressing the high level of education provided in the capital. Over the past five years, almost 80 percent of Minsk’s alumni have entered higher educational establishments each year, while republican Olympiads on certain subjects see Minsk schoolchildren placed top in 13 disciplines (among 16). Meanwhile, participants of international Olympiads have captured 26 medals.
