The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Міністерство освіти і науки України) is the main body in the system of central bodies of the executive power.

History[edit]

On 28 June 1917 Ivan Steshenko was appointed Secretary of Education in the First Vynnychenko government of the Ukrainian People's Republic.[1] The 1921 Treaty of Riga formerly ended the existence of the Ukrainian People's Republic as its former territory became part of Poland and the Soviet Union.[3]

The modern Ministry of Education was created on July 8, 1992 by merging two major organs of the Ukrainian SSR: the Ministry of Higher and Middle Specialized Education and State Committee on Vocational-Technical Education. In 1991 there were two ministries of education — National and Higher (formerly Higher and Middle Specialized).[4]

From 9 December 2010 until 28 February 2013 the Ministry of Education and Science (at the time led by Dmytro Tabachnyk) was merged with the Ministry of Youth and Sports.[5]

On 28 February 2013 President Viktor Yanukovych reorganized the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sports and the State Service for Youth and Sports, creating the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.[6]

Structure [7][edit]

The ministry consists of the central body headed by the minister,[8] first deputy, and other deputies to assist the minister. Part of ministry elects several state administrations representatives that are specialized in certain field and coordinate operation of government companies.
