Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. This year is marking the 100th anniversary of establishing the Teacher’s School or today’s Mongolian State University of Education (MSUE) and laying the foundation of preparing teaching staff in Mongolia, enlightening the nation, and teaching literacy to all, founding today’s education, culture, and social development.
In the late autumn of 1922, 15 literate young people gathered in the capital city from aimags and rural areas to participate in a temporary teacher’s training course. It is believed to be the beginning of the teacher preparation system.
The Teacher’s School was the foundation of many schools that train teachers for secondary and higher education and marked the beginning of the education system in Mongolia. In 1921, almost the entire nation was illiterate, but the country became 100 percent literate in less than 50 years because of this school.
It was announced from the podium of the United Nations that the nation had become fully literate. This year, the same platform named the country that has successfully implemented the digital transition in the education sector or has successfully started the process of technological literacy. The Minister of Education and Science emphasized every teacher’s effort to fulfill the role of transforming education successfully and continuously educating every child during the difficult times of the pandemic.
The teachers from different times, graduates, and current students participated in the 100th anniversary of the Teachers’ School. The Chairman of the State Great Hural and the Prime Minister of Mongolia sent messages congratulating the staff.
