Announcement of the presentation of the results of the All-Ukrainian research on the development of education in communities

After the local elections in 2020, the process of unification of territorial communities in Ukraine has been completed. Since then, 1,438 communities have been given more power, including responsibility for the development of local education.


The extent to which education is available in communities today and whether managers, teachers, students and parents are satisfied with its quality will be discussed during the presentation of the results of the first stage of the All-Ukrainian Sociological Survey "Decentralization of Education Management in Ukraine". The press conference will take place on January 20, 2022 at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center, and will be moderated by Nataliia Humeniuk, co-founder of the NGO “Hromadske Telebachennia”.


The research results are presented by:

  • Nataliia Protasova, Director of the Swiss-Ukrainian DECIDE Project, Chair of the NGO “DOKKY” (online);
  • Valentyna Poltorak, manager of the Swiss-Ukrainian project DECIDE, Deputy Chair of the NGO “DOKKY”;
  • Volodymyr Paniotto, Director General of the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology;
  • Anton Hrushetskyi, Deputy Director of the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.


The first year of reform posed many questions to the government, communities and society. Experts will discuss during the press conference:

  • how to plan the development of education strategically;
  • how to interact with government agencies, build effective communication with educators and citizens;
  • whether funding for educational development is sufficient;
  • how to develop human resources;
  • how to optimize and digitize education management.


The authors of the research will also talk about reporting in the education system - how much time managers spend on average, who use educational statistics and the willingness of managers to move to e-document management.


In addition, during the press conference will discuss governance, strata of education development planning, communication and gender bias in education.


It is planned that after the presentation of the results of the research there will be a panel discussion "Strategic development of education in the territorial communities of Ukraine". It will be attended by MPs, representatives of ministries, the Swiss Embassy in Ukraine and local communities.
