The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin commented on the “shameful” results of the school final exam in mathematics. About this he wrote in his Facebook.
“Frankly, I want to sound the alarm. It’s a complete disaster! Forty-eight percent of students failed to solve the problem of eighth grade. Every second of today’s graduates are not versed in elementary math rules!” — complained the Minister.
According to Klimkin, without a change in approach to teaching and stimulation of youth Ukraine risks “to be nowhere”. He noted that “education is the path to a successful future,” and turning from him, the country dooms itself to the “periphery of life.”
The Ukrainian Minister added that the unsatisfactory state of Affairs applies not only in mathematics, but English, history, geography, and, “what is striking”, the Ukrainian language. “Think about it?! And nobody notices! You are not shocked?”, — said Klimkin.
In August, a Facebook user Andrey Manchuk published on the page of excerpts from Ukrainian geography for pupils of 8-th class, the contents of which struck him subscribers. In particular, the book notes that “in fact, thousands of years, Ukraine was in the same limits”, and the Ukrainians over the centuries have created the most melodious songs in the world.
