The problem of providing licensed PC software to Russian schools will be resolved by the end of this year
The problem of providing licensed PC software to Russian schools will be resolved by the end of this year, acting Information Technologies and Communications Minister Leonid Reiman told the media on Thursday. “A total of 65,000 software packages will be distributed among schools. The federal agency for education will be the license holder. Currently work is in progress on Russia’s own Linux-based software. It will undergo testing by the end of this year and as of next year it will begin to be installed on school PCs in three experimental regions – the Perm Territory, Tatarstan and the Tomsk Region.” Reiman recalled that a tiny one percent of Russian schools still had no connection to the Internet. “This is a huge, unprecedented project, because the problems encountered were colossal. Sixty percent of Russian schools are rural ones, and those schools had no telephones or electricity,” Reiman said. As at September 1, 2006 a mere nine thousand Russian schools of the 62,000 were computerized. The national project in the sphere of education proved crucial, as it gave a powerful boost to education and information resources. Last year the fleet of school PCs grew by 15 percent, and this year it will increase by 25 percent, Reiman said.
