      Good education, qualified human resources are the key for progress
      in the modern world, area where Macedonia seriously lags behind. The
      fact is that the majority of the Macedonian citizens have primary
      school education or less. It is difficult to attract higher value
      added investments with unqualified cheap labor. The Center for
      Research and Policy Making (CRPM) offers you two new analyses
      discussing particular issues affecting the low quality of the
      Macedonian education system. In the first study we were interested
      to find out if there is a fair competition between private and
      public universities, how new universities are accredited, what are
      the problems in the procedure and how to rectify them. We give
      recommendations regarding the structure of the Accreditation Board,
      issuing of standardized document for all applicants, and securing
      transparency in the work of the Accreditation Board.

      In the second study we have studied the problem Macedonian youth
      face recognizing their diplomas earned abroad. The procedure is
      expensive. Many legal obstacles exist. Although the law speaks of a
      system of recognition of diplomas a procedure for nostrification is
      still undertaken. Compatibility of the academic programs is
      mentioned as an important criterion for the recognition. Few have
      the patience to go through the process. Getting PhDs and MAs from
      excellent universities young Macedonians that return home end up
      working for international organizations or NGO's. Their foreign
      diplomas are not worth at public institutions, many private
      companies as well as at universities. CRPM recommends policy changes
      to stop this brain drain and convert the potential these young
      people are carrying into a brain gain for Macedonia, especially in
      the process of its economic revival.
      Sincerely Yours,
