Week of Science and Creativity - 2014

Metting with Ballast


Youth are not our future,
They are our presence, who will build our future!

        It is particularly important to consider that today's students are a totally unique human resource. And here, in terms of high school, we must be able to set the right direction for their further development.

We should not forget that today's young people, who got higher education, will form the basis of the political, economic and scientific elite of our society in the foreseeable future. So their personal and social values, ideological core, level of civic responsibility, predetermine the successful development of our Kazakhstani society. Training and education of students are one of the most important priorities of the educational policy of our state. Considering students as an important social group in the structure of society, which in the future will determine political and socio-economic development of the country, the government has pursued a consistent and purposeful work on social support of students, improving educational process, and providing equal opportunities for young people to get higher education. In work with students the state distinguishes a special role of student organizations and formations, as they are called to actively participate in the formation and development of civil society in Kazakhstan, to create optimal conditions for the revitalization of socially significant activities of students, to develop student government.
