Ljubica likewise works at the Staff of News coverage in Skopje as a lesser right hand. As of late, she helped to establish “BID Counseling”, where she fills in as a market expert, business and PR specialist.

Q: A few onlookers say that training in Macedonia is being upset – others that it is going through a tumultuous disturbance. Could you at any point distinguish for us the significant changes (private schooling, funding, significant regulation, and so on.)?

LG: The expansion of essential training to nine years, the arrangement of a PC to each understudy, the Law for Advanced education, and the development of schools through open confidential organizations are a portion of the large tasks in training declared by the ongoing Government. Be that as it may, their execution by and by yielded differing results, at times veering off from the normal ones.

The execution of the idea of nine-year long essential instruction began the first of September 2007. Subsequently, two ages of students signed up for the 1st grade: those five and a half years old and those seven years of age. Guardians were more than confounded.

As per the overhauled Law of Essential Training, youngsters who will be five years and eight months old before the year’s over reserve the privilege to sign up for 1st grade. Accordingly, a few youngsters had to stand by till the following school year since they planned to arrive at the legitimate age just in January.

The Macedonian constitution doesn’t permit private grade schools to be opened. In this manner, guardians can’t pick educators. The school does it for them. One more incongruity of the model of the nine drawn out essential training is that the students who are seven years of age this school year and are in the 1st grade, will, one year from now, avoid the subsequent grade and consequently go into the third.

In a circumstance in which many schools in the nation have demolished rooftops, no latrines, no safe power wiring, the Public authority last year reported an undertaking “PC for each youngster”. Regardless of the vainglorious declaration that PCs will at first be introduced in all secondary schools, toward the start of this school year just three secondary schools were so fortunate. By examination, six or a long time back, practically every one of the rudimentary and secondary schools in the nation got a couple of laptops each: a gift from the Taiwanese Government. The hardware has before long turned into the objective of burglaries.

One of the significant snags is that instructors – particularly the old ones – are PC unskilled. Another serious issue is that in Macedonia, for a couple of years at this point, there is no model to quantify the information on understudies after they had completed rudimentary, or optional school. Hence, around 95% of the understudies that alumni fromĀ education Egypt rudimentary training as well as from secondary schools, are straight An understudies. Assuming this propensity proceeds, the expectations are that till 2010 all understudies in Macedonia will be straight An understudies.

3. Macedonia is a multi-ethnic country. How does its school system adapt to this variety (portions, isolation, showing in minority dialects, and so forth.)?

LG: The sacred right to concentrate on in one’s first language (in Macedonia, understudies concentrate on in the Macedonian, Albanian, Turkish and Serbian dialects) and the impact of the contention in 2001 caused despite everything are causing isolation among understudies. On the off chance that this right started the isolation, the contention and the biases it brought about expanded the division among understudies – among Macedonians and Albanians, and in the beyond two years, among Macedonian, Albanian and Roma understudies.
