Knowledge Day is a solemn and very responsible day, especially for first-year students. A new stage in their educational activity begins: a new educational institution, new disciplines, new teachers, new friends.
On September 1, a solemn line dedicated to the Day of Knowledge was held at the Arkalyk State Pedagogical Institute named after I. Altynsarin.
The rector of ArkGPI Seytbek Kuanyshbaev congratulated all freshmen, faculty and staff of the university on the beginning of the new academic year. He also told those present about the new bill “On the status of a teacher”, the main task of which is to establish incentives for teachers and increase the prestige of the profession. The draft law includes measures of material and non-material incentives for teachers. The main material incentives consist of a twofold increase in bonuses for classroom management and examination of notebooks, as well as for pedagogical skills, master's degree and mentoring.
