Belarus celebrates Knowledge Day today. More than a million schoolchildren have started their studies. 114,000 children went to the first grade for the first time. About 3,000 schools throughout the country have opened their doors. Starting September 1, students will enjoy social support measures: free transportation to the place of study, reduced fees for food and textbooks, full support from the state budget for some categories of children. This Knowledge Day will be a special one for 5,000 young teachers who came to schools after universities. The president congratulated students and teachers on the holiday.
