The educational system of our country aims to integrate into the world educational space. Kazakhstan needs to join the main international agreements in the field of higher education, including Lisbonese "The agreement on the recognition of higher education qualifications" (1997), the Bologna Declaration (1999). Therefore, the results of education corresponding to European qualification of 4th level should allow entry to the Bachelor in universities of our country and the rest of the world. To fulfill these requirements content of secondary education should be reviewed. First, we determine the value generated by the child on the basis of national idea "Mangilik el." Second, we determine the expected results. Only after formation of the content, i.e. the objects are determined. Also the evaluation system were discussed.
Elementary school should emphasize basic knowledge, the first study research skills, the prerequisites for scientific knowledge of the environment, learn self-learning, forms skills for cooperation and exchange of views.
During primary school, basic training has been switched to certain initial vocational direction.
In high school, vocational direction deepens and prepares to study at higher education institutions and clarification of the future path in life. “The development of creative thinking, learning three languages, as well as socialization on three levels are reviewed, "- said Chairman of the Board.
