The great honor for the SSI “IEA” is the fact that the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Lilia Hrynevych supported the initiative to create the journal “Educational analytics of Ukraine” and wrote an introductory word, which is quoted below:

“Education reform is one of the key issues of the transformation processes that the Ukrainian government is currently being implemented in order to realize the European integration. Educational reforming should ensure the accession into the European and world educational space, improve the process of educational services supporting and equal citizens access to qualitative education, modernization of its content in accordance with the requirements of the modern labor market.

The successful implementation of educational reform is impossible without modern information and analytical support. Therefore, management decisions will be more well-considered when using reliable sectoral statistical data and results of analytical researches, on the basis of integrated monitoring.

Modern international practice of data collection and processing of statistical information in the field of education covers a very wide range of indicators for the different educational areas, from the condition of preschool, general secondary, vocational and higher education to the identification of the relationship of the individual’s education level with the needs of the labor market, income of the population, etc. Developed in different countries, in particular in the European Union, the information and analytical bases give the opportunity to realize a successful educational policy and to respond to the recurrent problems as soon as reasonably possible.

In Ukraine, the information and analytical components of education management are being applied not enough. This is due to the fact that educational statistics in Ukraine is still disintegrated, insufficiently comprehensive and complete, it does not provide a number of necessary indicators, in particular, for financial management of education sector, etc. Therefore, the development of educational statistics in Ukraine, bringing it in line with international standards, the formation of educational analytics on this basis is an extremely important task, which is defined by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. The fulfillment of this task is entrusted to the SSI “IEA”.

That is why the SSI “IEA” initiates the establishment of the journal “Educational analytics of Ukraine” in order to develop educational statistics, improve the methodology for the collection, processing, and analysis of educational information. Creation of this edition is an important step in the process of developing a system of informational and analytical support for Ukrainian education management. The journal “Educational analytics of Ukraine” should become the platform for professional discussions, exchange of opinions of scientists and practitioners on the development of information and analytical support for the education system management at all its levels, a detailed analysis of international experience on these issues. We hope that the journal’s content will attract the attention of a wide range of specialists-educators both in Ukraine and abroad”.
