The Financing of Education: Level and Mechanisms
Smolin, Oleg
Russian Education and Society, v47 n3 p50-65 Mar 2005
This paper explores the different economic reform models and mechanisms for financing education in Russia. Several financial innovations were used in governmental conceptions of the reform in education. However, the question of mechanisms for financing education has been brought to the forefront in highly industrialized countries that have established a rather high level of such financing and have a predominance of people with high and medium incomes. Any attempts to "do everything the way they do" while leaving the budget "the way ours is" is not likely to lead to anything except the traditional practice of "robbing Peter to pay Paul." It will never be possible to improve the mechanisms of the financing of education in Russia unless its level is raised. This, in turn, will require a change in the ideology and the priorities of the state's education policy. (Contains 1 note.)
