Modernization of the Rural School: The Accessiblitity and Quality of Education
Stepanova, Tat'iana
Russian Education and Society, v46 n12 p18-29 Dec 2004
Iaroslavl Oblast is a pilot region on problems of the modernization of education. It was entirely logical that the oblast was given this status: modernization was something that administrators on different levels viewed not formally but substantively. A number of aspects were developed to improve the sector, such as normative financing of schools, new approaches to upgrading cadre qualifications, the creation of state and civic administration of education, and planning of the education space. All of these factors have an effect on the development of the society, including rural life, and serve to enhance the prestige of education. This year Iaroslavl was selected to be the venue for a zonal conference on the results of the work of the Central Federal District of the Russian Federation, and it was the site of the National Conference on Problems of the Rural School. This article explores the mechanisms of modernization and the various administrative structures, methodology services, and educational institutions taking part in it.
