OECD Reviews of Integrity in Education: Ukraine 2017

image of OECD Reviews of Integrity in Education: Ukraine 2017

Education in Ukraine is marked by integrity violations from early childhood education and care through postgraduate study.  In the past decade policy makers and civic organisations have made progress in addressing these challenges. However, much remains to be done. OECD Reviews of Integrity in Education: Ukraine 2017 aims to support these efforts.

The review examines systemic integrity violations in Ukraine. These include: preferential access to school and pre-school education through favours and bribes; misappropriation of parental contributions to schools; undue recognition of learning achievement in schools; paid supplementary tutoring by classroom teachers; textbook procurement fraud; and, in higher education, corrupt access, academic dishonesty, and unwarranted recognition of academic work.

The report identifies how policy shortcomings create incentives for misconduct and provide opportunities for educators and students to act on these incentives. It presents recommendations to address these weaknesses and strengthen public trust in a merit-based education system. The audience of this report is policy makers, opinion leaders and educators in Ukraine.

Corrupt access to higher education in Ukraine

This chapter focuses on integrity violations that occur as students seek to gain access to graduate and undergraduate programmes in public higher education in Ukraine. It examines integrity violations in access to master’s degree programmes, such as bribes and examination fraud, which are enabled by a decentralised admission process that is not guided by policy, open to scrutiny or subject to review. An opaque access to dormitories, based on a wide range of inconsistently used criteria, is a second area of concern.
