Kafkaesque Education
Khagurov, T. A.
Russian Education & Society, v57 n8 p661-678 2015
The article examines not-so-evident influences of postmodernism on modern Russian education, its values and norms. At school, children have to face inadequate competitions and carry out projects, which are irrelevant to their experience and even age. During holiday festivities, the rejection and oblivion of traditional culture and core human values becomes even more blatant. In the meantime, schoolteachers are loaded with paperwork and have to conform to new educational standards, while parents are forced to find some out-of-school solutions to the existing learning environment. The author reveals that postmodernism is, in fact, deeply rooted in Russian everyday life, filling it with absurdities and simulacra. [This article was translated by Kenneth Cargill.]
