Ukrainian Government to ban school education

Summary of Disinformation

Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine wants to replace secondary education with homeschooling and pedagogical patronage. The teachers are fleeing into Russia, Belarus and EU.

Such initiatives prove a collapse of the general educational system in Ukraine, since the state does not have enough funds to support a large number of schools.

No evidence given.

In fact, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine intends to add alternative forms of education. At the moment, the Ukrainian law “On General Secondary Education” mentions only two forms of education: general and external studies. According to the proposed modifications, it would include also homeschooling and pedagogical patronage. These modifications are not meant to replace the school education, but to help children who have special educational needs. The Ukrainian Government has increased school funding over the past years.
