Georgia's government has taken on responsibility to provide “unprecedented support” for education in the country and invest one-fourth of the state budget for educational goals, Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze stated during the presentation of the government initiative: Education - Way to Freedom.
"Through investing one-fourth of the budget in education, Georgia will become one of the most educated nations worldwide and this will happen soon," Agenda.ge cited him as saying.
Bakhtadze said that increasing funds for education will start this year and reach its maximum in 2022.
The PM claimed that the government’s efforts to provide for high-quality education will also encourage the private sector to invest money in the field, which will result in new schools and kindergartens, high-educational institutions and new campuses.
Bakhtadze said that Georgia faces two major challenges for now - occupation and poverty, and both of them will be defeated by educated generations.
