Georgia sending future abroad2011-09-01 11:35
Georgian Labourites are indignant. Talking about the sunny future of schools and higher educational institutions in the country, the ruling establishment sends its children to study abroad. Meanwhile, common Georgian kids are unable to get normal education. The opposition demands that the officials specify the place and cost of their children's education in their declarations. But will it help bring the advocates of foreign education out into the open?
Georgian opposition has burst another soap bubble blown by the country's government. Everyone remembers President Saakashvili's exited verbiage about how wonderful education in Sakartvelo is and how much the state is doing for it and will do in future.
"It gave me a great pleasure to visit this Ministry, for it was in absolute order and very up-to-date inside. This will not only impact on the quality of cooperation but also shows the management's attitude to what they are doing", - that was the way Saakashvili described his impression after a visit to the Georgian Ministry of Education last year.
But PR is PR and reality is reality. Whatever honey words Mishiko said about the sparkling tops of the Georgia education, practically all children of the ruling establishment are studying abroad.
As Secretary General of the Georgian Labour Party Iosiph Shatberashvili stated at the press-conference on August 29, Mikhail Saakashvili and his regime have deprived the growing generation of a chance to get comprehensive education in their own country. But what do officials care? They're OK and their children are properly settled.
"The officials' children know nothing of these problems. They pay 5-10-20 thousand per year for their education and the main point is that they do not go to Georgian institutions. A lot of Georgian high-ranking officials' children study at foreign higher educational institutions and are trained to become our kids' masters", - Shatberashvili stated at the press-conference.
There is nothing to be surprised at, though: having snatched their piece of power, thoughtful parents are doing their best to let the children take advantage of their parents' opportunities.
