UAH 1 billion 385.2 million of subvention is envisaged in the 2018 budget for the New Ukrainian School, of which UAH 998.7 million will be used for primary school equipment, and UAH 386.5 million – to train primary school teachers. The resolution regulating the distribution of these funds and their use has been adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine today, on 4 April 2018, in the premises of the Government Building.
"On 1 September 2018, all first-year pupils will come to the New Ukrainian School. Most importantly, these children will be taught in accordance with a new primary school standard and will receive a qualitatively new content of education. However, in order to fully implement this project, in addition to teacher training, it is also necessary to create a necessary educational environment. That is why this resolution is an unprecedented step, as it is for the first time in Ukraine's history that such a sum of money is directed to the primary school. And the primary school is the basis for the whole further development of a child, his/her perception and attitude towards education," said Liliya Hrynevych, Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine.
The most important thing determined by the resolution is the way the part of subvention in the amount of UAH 998.7 million, foreseen for the purchase of equipment, will be used. Thus, it is planned that:
Traditionally, the state funding will be provided to local self-government bodies on the basis of co-financing:
"We understand that the money allocated from the budget will not suffice for all schools in Ukraine. Therefore, we expect that the local authorities, whose powers directly entail the creation of appropriate studying conditions, will become our partners in creating a new educational space. We do not expect local authorities to finance everything, we only hope that they will fulfill their obligations and will co-finance the lower part of the cost that we ask to be funded," the Minister noted.
