May Finance and private universities, in case they choose the best applicants. As noted in the Ministry, the new Law of Ukraine «On higher education» allows us to provide public funding to private universities. Changes in legislation are currently being developed by the Ministry and will be presented to the public for discussion, private schools will receive funding for one indicator — the number of students from among the best who want to study in a private school.
The Ministry noted that today the system of higher education funding covers utilities universities and pay teachers. The number of teaching rates is tied to the number of students. Instead of having to teach fewer students and have money for other expenses, primarily for research, it encourages spending all the money only for education.
Earlier it became known, as reforming Ukrainian orphanages and schools.
