Books for zero forms will be printed in the Latin schedule – the Minister

The obligatory introduction of zero forms in schools was postponed from 2019 to 2020.

The obligatory introduction of zero forms in schools will be postponed from 2019 to 2020, because of the preparation of books in the Latin schedule, conduction of expertise and training of specialists will take certain amount of time. It was said by Minister of Education and Science of Kazakhstan Yerlan Sagadiyev at the meeting of the Government, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

“That is about 400 thousand children, new books should be published for zero forms due to the transition to the Latin schedule. I think that to print these books in Latin is a right decision. It will also be effective in terms of finances. It takes time to prepare new books, to conduct expertise and to train teachers. That is why, we will introduce zero forms by 2020. Such an amendment was introduced to the state program,” Yerlan Sagadiyev said.

At the same time, the Minister noted that at present 85% of zero forms educate children.

“Our goal is to cover children in zero forms in full, as well as to introduce a single program. There are no many amendments, only the alphabet will be studied in the Latin schedule. But, funds for approbation have not allocated yet,” the Minister said.
