Adult Education and Indigenous Peoples in Russia. International Survey on Adult Education for Indigenous Peoples. Country Study: Russia.
Adult education for indigenous peoples in Russia was examined. First, information on government institutions, indigenous organizations, international agencies, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) engaged in adult education for Russia's indigenous peoples was compiled. Next, questionnaires and survey techniques were used to research the policy and practice of adult education for Russia's indigenous peoples. Special attention was paid to the following topics: (1) Russia's sociodemographic, socioeconomic, linguistic, and ecologic situations; (2) past and present legislation and national policies; (3) the current situation in aboriginal adult education; (4) state governmental programs and organizations; (5) NGOs and indigenous organizations; and (6) ecological problems and adult aboriginal education. The study established that Russia's existing system of education does not promote the development of national northern cultures. In 1960-1980, the emphasis in adult aboriginal education was on preparing teachers and medical staff of aboriginal origin through the study of aboriginal languages. The absence of material, technical, and financial support is a major obstacle to improving the current situation regarding adult aboriginal education. (The bibliography contains 29 references. A list of 8 Web sites concerned with adult education in Russia is appended along with information about and the addresses of 34 governmental organizations and 23 NGOs and indigenous organizations.)
