A position of a school principal in Bishkek costs about $30,000, MP Ryskeldi Mombekkov said on March 6 during the meeting of the parliamentary meeting on social issues, education, science, culture and health.
MP Tazabek Ikramov said earlier that a working group of the committee asked the government to make changes to the law on education to shorten a term of tenure as school principal to up to 6 years.
Mombekov noted that even MPs are elected for a specific term, while principals can hold the position for unlimited term.
"A position of a school principal is profitable, therefore candidates are ready to pay about $25,000-30,000 to obtain the position," said Mombekov.
