In Yamal much was done for development of nomadic education. But also much work is ahead in order each inhabitant of the region would receive education, not depending on his or her place of residence. This information was given by a deputy governor of Yamal Tatyana Buchkova on the conference. Development of education in nomadic conditions in the region was discussed within this sitting.
According to her words, it is important that such work in the region would become interdepartmental. The director of the department of education of Yamal Irina Sidorova notes that many departments of the region participate in fulfillment of the project «Nomadic school». For example, the department of informational technologies and communication of Yamal fulfilled big work for providing nomadic children with means of communication for organizing of distance education. The regional department of agro-industrial complex, trade and foodstuff helps teenagers to pass practical studies in agricultural communities, where they have the opportunity to receive necessary professional skills.
The department of education conducts big number of activities to increase number of teachers for nomadic education. But there are some difficulties in this issue. As the head of Yamal education underlines, the department will solve this task actively next year.
As Irina Sidorova notes, the number of children involved into the system of preschool and school nomadic education grows. Today there are more than 100 preschool pupils; it is two times more than last year. There are more than 70 nomadic school pupils. Thus, about 200 children receive education in nomadic conditions. It helps them to have equal chances for good results of education in graduation classes, when it needs to pass final state examinations, as she says.
In order as more children as possible would be covered with preschool education, the regional department on affairs of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North conducts serious explanatory work among tundra population in Yamal.
Besides, Irina Sidorova reminds that several manuals for pedagogues and children were published this year in the region. Now a nomadic teacher of Yamal has everything necessary to organize education in tundra.
