The plenary session of the Interregional Forum of native language teachers "Intercultural communication as a factor in strengthening the unity of the people" was held in the region on February 21, 2023 on the basis of the Center of Tatar Culture.
This year by the decision of the President was declared the Year of the Teacher and Mentor, which once again emphasizes the high status of the teacher in Russian society. The forum was timed to coincide with this event.

Deputy Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Alexander Korobko addressed the participants with a welcoming speech on behalf of Governor Alexey Russkikh.
"Preserving the unity of our multinational people is one of the main priorities of our policy. To achieve these goals and objectives, a number of very important legislative decisions have been recently adopted. Among them is the Decree approved by President Vladimir Putin on strengthening traditional values in Russia. Spiritual and moral values are the foundation of Russian society, which allows us to protect and strengthen Russia's sovereignty, ensure the unity of our multi-ethnic and multi-confessional country, preserve the people of Russia and develop human potential. And native languages are our common value, our common heritage, form the cultural, ethnic diversity and true wealth of Russia", - emphasized the Deputy Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Alexander Korobko.
Alexander Mikhailovich presented letters of thanks to native language teachers for their merits in the development of the education sector, preservation of national cultures and national traditions and many years of fruitful work on ethno-cultural education of the younger generation.
"It is symbolic that today's forum coincided with the Address of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. The head of state always pays close attention to this issue. One of the most important directions of the country's educational policy is the preservation and development of native languages, as this direction is a mirror of the people's soul. Today, a large number of educational programs have been adopted and methodological sets have been approved for more than 50 languages of the peoples of the Russian Federation. However, the preservation of native languages and their study in educational institutions is impossible without the support of the family. That is why the National Parents' Association now pays special attention to such an issue as involving parents in this sphere. And your region has a number of interesting methods to popularize this topic, which could be transferred to other subjects of the country", - said the head of the National Parents Association, a member of the board of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation Alexei Gusev.
