Representatives of the Ukrainian student's organizations are sure that the decision of the Cabinet on extension of the list of paid services in the sphere of the higher education will lead only to corruption growth in education.
They declared it today during a meeting with the Deputy head of the Secretariat of President of Ukraine Igor POPOV.
As reported the UNIAN in a press - service of the head of state, the address to the President of Ukraine more than 50 student's associations from the majority of regions of Ukraine in connection with adoption of the resolution of the Cabinet of Ukraine of April 14, 2009 No. 369 "About modification of some resolutions of the Cabinet of Ukraine" became a reason for this meeting.
In particular, on belief of the student's youth, separate provisions of the mentioned resolution significantly violate the rights of students and contradict provisions of the Constitution of Ukraine, and attempt at the expense of students "to patch" holes in budgets of educational institutions can lead only to corruption growth in education.
At a meeting problems of providing social guarantees of student's youth in the conditions of an economic crisis were also discussed. In particular, representatives of the student's organizations noted importance of introduction of a state program "A student's hostel" which would be aimed at providing students with places in hostels and improvement of conditions of accommodation, study and rest.
Student's activists expressed also negative relation of youth to acceptance by the government of the decision on reduction of the state order in 2009 on training of specialists in higher education institutions. They consider that these measures will significantly reduce possibilities of the introduction by training for public funds, first of all young men and girls from needy families.
I. Popov assured participants of a meeting that the head of state Victor YUSHCHENKO will be informed on the raised questions.
As it was reported, in the resolution of Cabinet of Ministers of April 14, 2009 No. 369 "About modification of some resolutions of the Cabinet of Ukraine" it is a question of essential expansion of paid services which can be provided by the state educational institutions.
In particular, to the list of paid services got payment of working off by students of practical, laboratory and seminar training on disciplines which were passed without valid excuse; carrying out additional individual classes; reimbursement for production of student's and student's tickets, record books; the service, connected with preparation for protection of theses on receiving scientific degree of the candidate or the doctor of science, etc.
