Ukrainian World Congress welcomes new Ukrainian law on education

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) welcomes the Law of Ukraine "On Education" which is yet another important step by Ukraine on its reform path.

"The Ukrainian World Congress is grateful to all educators in the diaspora who over the past 25 years contributed to changing and developing education in Ukraine. Adoption of the new Law of Ukraine "On Education" and its signing by the President of Ukraine is a joint success of Ukrainians worldwide," Chair of the UWC World Coordinating Educational Council Oksana Wynnyckyj-Yusypovych said.

"The Ukrainian World Congress will continue to actively work with the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine to ensure that education in Ukraine always meets the highest international standards," UWC President Eugene Czolij stated.   

The UWC supports the decision of Ukraine to submit the legislation to the Council of Europe for an expert review and to engage in consultations in view of the reaction by several foreign governments to specifics of the new law.

The Law of Ukraine “On Education” adopted by the Parliament of Ukraine on 5 September 2017 and signed into law by the President of Ukraine on 25 September 2017 will enable comprehensive reform of the educational system in Ukraine and position the country for inclusion in the European educational network.

The UWC and its Mission in Ukraine have repeatedly supported on various levels the draft Law of Ukraine “On Education” over the course of its preparation.
