Introduction to the Arts Education System in Uzbekistan

Starting from the first days of independence, Uzbekistan consistently implements the policy on reforming the education sector as a key element in the ongoing course of reforms and renewal of society, as a necessary and indispensable condition of democratic transformation in society, sustainable economic development, the republic's integration into the global community.

Awareness of these problems led to the fact that in 1997, the Uzbek government, was the first in the Former Soviet Union to develop and approve the National Program for training and providing the gradual reform of the entire education system. In 1999, UNESCO has decided to study and disseminate the positive experience of reforms in the training system of Uzbekistan in other countries.                                                                                                    

The basis of the national model in education is to ensure continuity of education, which is represented as a system of universal compulsory free secondary 12-year cycle, which includes 9 years of schooling and 3-year education, which continues in a professional college or academic lyceum - new types of educational institutions established under the national program.
