A Bright Future for Russian Higher Education.
Carnegie Reporter, v1 n1 p2-12 Sum 2000
Russian higher education is reinventing itself, but in distinctly Russian ways. While universities embrace new technology, students are frustrated as new freedoms confront old educational methods (grueling entrance exams, rote learning, dictatorial professors, and minimal participation). Education is still basically Russian, though capitalism is making an impact. Russian universities are adapting to new market forces in order to keep afloat. (SM)
