Today Ukraine has about 140 000 disabled children: for the last 5 years the level of children’s disability has increased by 24%. More than half of 12 – 14 years old children (62%) drink alcohol. Every second teenager smokes after reaching 15 years, and one in five uses drugs.
The reasons of aggravations include low level of health knowledge; physical inactivity; insufficient qualifications of teachers and educators on health and physical activity; parents’ ignorance and disinterest in health of their children.
As the main problems related to teaching health foundations at comprehensive school, Vynohradov considers the “low” status of the subject at school and the lack of teachers’ system knowledge and practical skills to use interactive methods which are an integral part of the learning process.
Oleh Oleksandrovych explained that the mentioned problems could be solved by dialogue and mutually advantageous cooperation between school and university which trains the teachers of heath foundation.
