Smart Education is an active non-governmental organization, registered in July 2016. However, the organization began its activities in 2012 with the initiative “Parental Control”. Then journalists Ivanna Kobernyk, Zoya Zvyniatskivska, Oksana Makarenko and Halyna Titysh drew attention to the low quality of textbooks for schoolchildren and tried to solve this problem by the means available to them – public discussions, high-profile texts and media stories. Subsequently, there were changes in the leadership of the state’s education sector, and many of our initiatives were reflected in the reform of the New Ukrainian School. This reform coincides in value with the vision of the members of the organization, and the two co-founders became advisers to the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Lilia Hrynevych.
The organization believes that the victory and a solid foundation for our society is the reform of education New Ukrainian School, which is designed to generate new meanings, values of development, respect, child-centeredness, innovation.
