Lur'e, L. I.
Russian Education and Society, v46 n10 p45-64 Oct 2004
The liberalization of civic life has caused broad segments of the population to take a great deal of interest in education as a value. For the first time in the history of the Russian school system, it is not the intrasystem methods that the object of discussion, but rather the socially oriented technologies of the modernization of society using the means of education. This article discusses the modernization of education in Russia and the development of research universities as a new type of educational institution. The modernization of education does not construe a specific future that is prescribed by its authors; it only determines the outlines, forms, and structural components of the educational system in a changing world, while at the same time leaving the maximum possible degree of freedom to its entities.
