Some 51% of Ukrainians believe that the modern education system does not meet the needs of the Ukrainian job market. At the same time, 32% of respondents chose to say that it "rather agree" that it does not meet the needs while 19% said it "definitely" does not do so. On the other hand, 40.9% consider the modern education system to be in line with the needs of the job market ("definitely agree" - 8.9%, "rather agree" - 32%). These are findings of the public survey entitled "Early coding as a component of modern education" conducted by Gorshenin Institute together with the Everest group of companies.
"Today we are seeing not just an increase in demand for studying coding among children of different age groups, but a new level of parents' education awareness of the needs and peculiarities of the modern job market. They understand how important the future successful self-realization of their children is and, most importantly, analyse what it takes. In fact, this is already the most important step at the stage of the formation of new approaches to the provision and obtaining of modern school education. The presence of a large-scale public request brings us closer to the implementation of relevant projects," the president of the Everest group of companies, Yuriy Chubatyuk, commented on the results of the study.
The public survey "Early coding as a component of modern education" was conducted among 1,000 respondents in April-May 2019.
