The Modernization of Russian Education
Filippov, V. M.
Russian Education and Society, v47 n3 p6-20 Mar 2005
These days many people are trying to assess what has been done in the past few years. The country is looking into the future and trying to map out the most optimal paths of its development. In this article, the author examines the main paths of development in the field of Russian Education. It is necessary to keep in mind the multi-plane character of the tasks to be accomplished, because of the large number of people who are going to school and teaching in the system of Russia's education. On the other hand, all coming innovations have to be oriented toward accomplishing the three main goals that have been mapped out in the Conception for the Modernization of Education: the expansion of its "accessibility," and improvement of the "quality" and the "effectiveness" of Russian education. In order to make the tasks that have to be accomplished more specific, it is worthwhile to formulate just what they are for each level of education. The author concludes that it is necessary to adopt a nationwide program in Russia whose implementation will activate the potential of all ministries and departments as well as civic organizations, business, and all of Russian society.
