Quality education is the foundation of a strong state. There are many talented people in Ukraine. And every year many of them come to the educational establishments to get an appropriate speciality and qualification. However, today many yesterday's students are redundant on the labor market. And those who can really create brilliant things seek their fortune abroad.

EDUCATION MUST MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LABOR MARKET
Ukrainian education is not focused on market needs. Its quality falls, but the number of students increases. According to recent data, only 10% of graduates of higher educational establishments find jobs in their field during the first year after graduation. These figures are shocking. And the situation will get worse if now we do not start changing the national education system.
QUALITY EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL ECONOMY
In developed countries a qualified person earns much more than its counterpart in Ukraine. Graduates are competitive in the labor market. If the Ukrainian education system prepares future workers basing on the needs of the market, the economic situation will change drastically. Examples – Central Europe, South Korea, Singapore. They changed the approach to education and thus turned from hopelessly backward countries into economic dragons of modern world.
