Belarusian authorities concerned about secondary education quality

Belarus has launched the National Educational Portal in order to provide comprehensive (informational, scientific, educational, and consultancy) support for all teachers, parents, and pupils involved in the school system (incl. pre-school, primary, secondary and special education).

Education Ministry officials would never admit it, but the Portal is a kind of state response to the reduced quality of secondary education in Belarus.

Despite some efforts by the Belarusian authorities aiming to improve the quality of education, they have been unable turn the situation around.
