Education and the pandemic: the attitudes of Ukrainians towards distance learning and External Independent Testing
The survey was conducted by the sociological service of the Razumkov Center jointly with the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation from July 3 to 9, 2020, via face-to-face interviews at the respondents’ place of residence. 2022 respondents aged over 18 y.o. were interviewed in all regions of Ukraine, except for Crimea and the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, according to a sample representative of the adult population according to the key socio-demographic indicators. The theoretical sampling error (excluding the design effect) does not exceed 2.3% with a probability of 0.95. The survey was funded as part of the MATRA project of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
The majority of Ukrainians evaluate the quality of school education in Ukraine as average (44.5%); 10% – give a positive evaluation. A third of citizens consider it either extremely low (11%) or rather low (22%). The majority of sceptical responses come from the Eastern region, and most positive responses come from the Western region.
