JAHORINA, November 22 (FENA) – The results of PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) survey for Bosnia and Herzegovina will be announced in the BiH Parliamentary Assembly on December 3, which is one of the most significant dates in state education since the results will show the condition of the education system in BiH.
Head of the Unit for Learning Standards and Evaluation in pre-school, primary and secondary education Žaneta Džumhur confirmed this at an interactive workshop “Media Contribution for the Protection and Promotion of the Rights of the Child”, organized by UNICEF BiH in Jahorina.
“For the first time, we will receive data based on analyses of tests and questionnaires completed by students (15-year-old) and school principals about the state of the BiH education system with the level of functionality in literacy in certain areas,” said Džumhur.
Based on the results of the PISA survey, input will be obtained for the economic development of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“Investing in quality education ensures direct investment in economic development,” said Džumhur.
She said that the announcement of these results will be a significant moment for us to understand what is happening in the BiH education system, and what needs to be done to make it better, that is, for every child to receive the education he/she deserves and which will direct him/her to live and function in the 21st century.
The implementation of the PISA survey was funded by the European Commission in the amount of EUR 197.000.
By organizing a workshop, UNICEF in Bosnia and Herzegovina continues its practice of consulting with media representatives, experts, activists and responsible institutions on media contributions to promoting the protection of the rights of the child.
