On Patriotic Education in the Cadet Corps of the Ministry for Civil Defense, Emergencies, and Natural Disasters
Galanin, Iu.
Russian Education and Society, v46 n12 p75-81 Dec 2004
The author discusses the current trend of cadet education in Russia. At the present time, more than fifty cadet schools have been set up in Russia. In the light of this trend among cadet schools, the author contends that patriotic education is an important subject matter that should be taught to young people aspiring to enroll in cadet schools. The author explains that "patriotic education" means instilling in the child a dedication to the most important spiritual values: the inculcation of patriotic feelings, concern for the interests of their country, a readiness for self-sacrifice for the sake of the country, fidelity to the Fatherland in times of military ordeal, and a feeling of pride for the heroic past of their country. The author explains that patriotic education both in the schools and in the cadet corps are best served by the course "Principles of Life Safety." This course is based on the laws "On Defense," "On Civil Defense," "On Protection of the Environment," and other decrees of the government. The course is being offered in all schools of the country from the first through the eleventh grades. It has a unified conception and scientific program. It focuses on both teaching a healthy way of life and providing applied physical training.
