Russian Higher Education: Who Can Afford It?
Gounko, Tatiana
International Journal of Educational Reform, v21 n3 p192-204 Sum 2012
The article explores the issue of access and equity in the Russian higher education system by examining recent government initiatives. While recently introduced measures such as the Unified State Examination and student loan project are designed to aid students and expand participation, they alone cannot ensure equitable access to higher education in Russia. To address the growing social stratification in education, the government needs to create formal assistance programs to mitigate existing socioeconomic and institutional barriers. (Contains 1 note.)
