Russian education standards continue to deteriorate
Russian education standards continue to deteriorate, the country's Education and Science Minister Andrei Fursenko said here the other day. Fursenko made this statement, while opening a science-and-technology symposium in Stanford, Ca. We are becoming less competitive; however, the admission of this fact will make it possible to improve the situation, Fursenko added. In his words, the current national education reform will make it possible to choose leading universities and colleges, which will receive additional appropriations. Apart from implementing the education reform, we will swell education appropriations, Fursenko told his audience. Fursenko talked to correspondents, after addressing the symposium. According to Fursenko, about ten percent of all Russian colleges and universities do not match specific education standards. The Russian Education Ministry estimates the number of the country's state-run and private universities and colleges at 3,000. In Fursenko's words, internationally accepted concepts will be used during the education reform. Moreover, the Soviet education system's achievements will be preserved. Among other things, the system of the Russian Academy of Sciences will not be demolished, Fursenko stressed. When asked by RIA Novosti whether the Soviet-era job-placement system will be reinstated or not, Fursenko replied that the situation could be rectified with the help of market-style methods.
