'I'll just say one sentence I've heard a few times from the school staff:' Principal, you've changed so much, you've been good before, but now ... 'I think it's thanks to this education that has opened up vistas, but, most interestingly, I did not change intentionally, but it happened spontaneously, education enters into being, so the person inside changes ... Thank you for that.'
