Four Goals of School Reform in the Soviet Union, 1984-1989: A Bumpy Journey for "Perestroika".
Wilson, Joan B.
Examined is the progress of four major goals of school reform in the Soviet Union as an integral part of Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev's call for a monumental restructuring (perestroika) of society. With the adoption of Fundamental Directions of General Education and Vocational School Reform (1984), four important goals were set in motion; (1) the entrance of six year olds into the primary school to begin the educational process at a more formative point; (2) the incorporation of a universal vocational educational core in the general education program to prepare students for their prescribed roles in the world of work; (3) the strengthening of the role of the teacher in Soviet education and society to improve the effectiveness of instruction and guidance of youth; and (4) the reorganization and decentralization of school administration to make the delivery system more incisive as well as responsive to needs in a multinational school system.
