Borisenkov, V. P.
Russian Education and Society, v49 n1 p60-77 Jan 2007
Improving the quality of life of the people of Russia--a paramount national priority--requires optimizing scientific activity and substantially increasing its technological success rate and social effectiveness, and reforming the administrative structure, in short, the fundamentalization of present-day science. The connection between fundamental science and people's quality of life, emphasized in the draft of the Long-Range Plan of Fundamental Research in Priority Areas of the Development of Science and Technology for the Period to 2025, is greatly changing the conception of the character and importance of pedagogy. Present-day science, which creates fundamental knowledge and the foundation of up-to-date technologies, exerts a direct influence on the content, level, and quality of education. Science is inseparable from universal human culture, and its role is to deal with complex economic, social, and ecological problems. Accordingly, fundamental pedagogical science is very closely linked to finding effective and timely solutions to problems of education and the development of the individual through the means of culture, providing new generations with pedagogical support in the processes of socialization, cultural identity, and the shaping of spiritual and moral steadfastness under globalization. This article discusses the substantial changes in planning, organization, motivation, and evaluation required in the development of fundamental pedagogical research in the Russian Academy of Education.
