Higher Education Corruption in Ukraine as Reflected in the Nation's Media
Osipian, Ararat L.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Research Conference and International Forum held at Harvard Graduate School of Education, Harvard University (Cambridge, MA, Feb 2007)
This paper considers corruption in higher education in Ukraine as reflected in the national media, including such aspects as corruption in admissions to higher education institutions and corruption in administering the newly introduced standardized test. The major focus is on the opinions of the leading figures of the education reform on corruption in education. The national media presents points of view of both supporters of the reform and those in opposition to the reform. Despite disbelief that the standardized test faces among the leading educators and legislators, including politicians and rectors of higher education institutions, the government continues implementation of the reform. Even though the standardized test is not expected to solve the problem of corruption in education, as follows from the media reports and comments, its full scale country-wide implementation at this point appears to be a question of time.
