Abstract. The general secondary education reform is an innovative process, which requires a “renewed” specialist for its successful implementation. In this context, a teacher should be a creative individual who is able to solve educational problems innovatively. To achieve this, teachers should constantly improve their professional skills. A teacher with higher education and relevant professional experience can help develop creative individuals who are capable of achieving career success and withstanding life’s challenges. Therefore, our research on providing pedagogical staff for the New Ukrainian School reform identified various factors, including the educational background and pedagogical experience, to address this challenge. For the analysis, we compiled a list of educational indicators, which allow us to validate the collected and analyzed statistical data, used for their calculation. For example, the indicator “Distribution of the number of teachers by educational and qualification levels and type of area” shows that the five-year reform of general secondary education, starting from the 2017/2018 academic year, has positively influenced the educational level of school teachers. In particular, the measures implemented as part of the reform to increase the prestige of the teaching profession led to a 1,3% increase in the proportion of teachers with a master’s degree in cities and a 4,6% increase in rural areas. However, although the indicator “Distribution of class size by type of area” shows positive trends, the performance of the general secondary education network needs further optimization. The maximum value of this indicator, as stated in the law “On complete general secondary education”, is 30. Thus, we can see that the educational indicators in accordance with the provisions of the “New Ukrainian school” Concept allow us to draw certain conclusions and formulate recommendations for adjustment of the educational reform process.
