Serzh Sargsyan: We must make good education affordable for all

ArmInfo."We must make good education affordable for all," Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said in his address on the occasion of Knowledge and Schooling Day. 

The press office of the Armenian President quotes Serzh Sargsyan as  saying: 

"Dear schoolchildren and students, teachers and parents, I cordially  congratulate you on the occasion of the September 1 - Knowledge Day.

Once it was important to propagate the importance of knowledge;  however, in the 21st century there is no doubt about that. Knowledge  has become the most powerful weapon and tool in the world for every  individual and society at large. In Armenia, we are highly aware of  that. We all see the readiness and dedication, which parents put in  to provide their children with good education.

We are improving our educational system consistently. We do realize  that we have issues at schools and higher education institutions  which need to be fixed. These issues have mainly to do with the level  of education, which cannot satisfy us. We are not content just  because perfection has no limits but also since in the contemporary  world the pace of development has increased dramatically. We have to  keep up with the world. We have to accelerate the development of  education.

We also must make good education affordable for all. No teenager  should lose the opportunity to receive good education only because he  or she cannot pay for it.

Judging from the results demonstrated by our schoolchildren at the  international competitions, our schools are not doing badly. Our  school is competitive; however, we cannot be complacent, and it is  necessary to raise the bar of our requirements every year, otherwise,  we will be lagging behind the developing world.

I once again congratulate you all on the occasion of the Knowledge  Day and wish you an academic year full of success and achievements."
