parade in a russian cities to celebrate a victory day but ukrainian veterans have to fight the nazis once again after a brutal attack by nationalists during the festivities. called next how russia's new education system will help youngsters adapt to changes in the country we discussed this with education at a science minister under way and our exclusive interview right here on arts. and they don't listen to russia's minister of education it's great to have you with us we used to be very proud of the soviet educational system when here it is there with say there are six great school student studies things that american students
10:32 am
on study until four years into the university they've got to have forms of out of what is going to change not only in the system but more importantly in their mentality. but. first of all we indeed used to have a good educational system of law but it was very adapted to the country we lived in at the time and it had its flaws one such issue was that when the country changed completely here those who had previously received a good education fails to adapt if took on the lesson learned here is that as we reform the educational system teaching students to adapt to change our world and its values and she succeeded must be at the heart of what. we doing it today our country changed back in the ninety's. because at any given time people take either more or less attention to education the educational system underwent considerable reforms during the soviet era as well it is worth noting though. when the need for reforms was already there the country experienced dramatic and your profound change
10:33 am
and education was put on the back burner sort of speak in the one nine hundred ninety s. when the need for change was acute and state lacks the necessary funds or resources to have lamented that's why by introducing a new law and education and giving educational institutions more freedom it is the state itself withdrew from education both in terms of support and in terms of setting requirements and goals the education system should be awarded with a like a much. better story for educational reforms are being criticized by many. cloying state officials teachers students parents experts their main point being that they were forms half failed what's your response to that. thing is is that we'll only get a proper impression of the reforms impact if they fail or not in about ten years time for me my priority is different it's important that officials teachers and students parents are saying that today's educational system is not good enough it
10:34 am
means it needs to be changed as for how exactly it needs to be changed here opinions vary with and we encourage and welcome all stakeholders participation in discussions we are completely open and all issues are being discussed in detail and gradually step by step we are making progress we remember how much discussion there was around the united states exams to take suggests that the majority of teachers are in favor of them as are the majority of students together with their parents who already took it those opposing it are typically never had anything to do with the exam at all they've just read the press and have an impression something is wrong. he was like a little more specifically but they were rather implies that the only compulsory subjects are curriculum personal safety and security is it or education mathematics and russia in the global world although no one really understands what that is about it's assumed to be a subject with an ideological slant when she agreed that at her first glance it looks like a very odd list of subjects and quite logically one wants to ask why not
10:35 am
a russian language or not history even our prime minister said in his speech after the physical training maybe it's worthwhile to revise this list of ballots fresh objects but the criteria to use in defining them. the first thing i'd like to say is that as of today this is nowhere near an accepted standard it is a suggestion made by one expert group we simply offer it up for public discussion this ingestion proposes at least ten compulsory subjects on the curriculum which should also be noted that there are subjects which are not so much compulsory standardized across various record systems what will the student can choose an art or science they can choose to work in the destry or to follow a career in the performing arts garbus about a student should be fit and healthy and therefore no matter what subjects they choose and consider of abortions for themselves physical education in schools are of fundamental interest similarly to the complicated and dangerous world we live in people must be able to deal with emergency situation which is measured first aid or
10:36 am
know what to do with god forbid a terrorist attack occurs on the subject probably does not have an extensive program it is essential for everyone with every educational curriculum of course there's no doubt literature mathematics natural sciences should be compulsory depending on how a student plans their futures they have an opportunity to select on the subject list two different modules so many see problems coming a school based education but with a higher education they say that our higher educational institutions have fallen way behind those in the developed world do you agree with. that's. the problem i believe it's a global problem to thing is that globally education changes more slowly than the incredibly fast developments we see in economics and the social sphere often problems of human innovation changes a rapid manyfold high and others grow disenchanted that's why anti social incidents are on the rise and it may explain growth in drug addiction because some try to
10:37 am
deny the facts of rapid change to avoid a life bringing new challenges demands and solutions we must prepare our children for that as perhaps we should start with preschool institutions and primary schools our higher education may not meet the challenges of the present but we are trying to find a solution are supporting the best institutes in the country by bringing up leaders who will reform the whole education system that we know with at this level we give our students more freedom to choose what to study with us along with we've got to create opportunities for them once they've made their choice it is student chooses natural sciences we have a responsibility to provide top quality education in this subject and we would like it to be the best in the world today in some universities we provide his level of education but in others it's not yet against changes and reforms are needed throughout the system and we need a couple of that couple why do you think so many welcome parents sent their children to study abroad the same thing with students from the rest of their families as well as they receive
10:38 am
a grant they leave the country to study abroad but i think that. that's up. to me not everyone the situation is changing situation is different from how it was ten or fifteen years ago moreover many young people are returning to russia because today there are job opportunities and interesting places to live for the past several years the average age of people working in science has been slowly going down the number of people involved in scientific research who are younger than forty is rising this is what we dreamt of just a few years ago young scientists who are seeing. additional education and experience abroad are starting to come back we have to create conditions where they're working to make education science and economics more attractive for our young people so that they will stay in the country. how can that be done i remember last year young scientists say to the pressure received a noble his present physics that they all live abroad how can we stop the brain drain man we are making
10:39 am
a great effort we're building of our trees raising salaries for young scientists we're inviting renowned scientists from around the world to create you know barger is in the country this process will take a long time we've lost a lot and now we're restoring it step by step in that is that we can't expect good results over nice work that we are seeing positive changes at every stage but there are negatives to what we're working on that we live in a world where we can turn to to speak about both good and i gave you several examples of our work but unfortunately very few people know about that we should for claim our progress as much as we address with all of this with the theater. in dallas presently grades except that from now on pressure will recognize that foreign university promises about russian credentials are not recognized abroad it's a really fair. it's unfair but a retaliation in this respect is not the right option we're interested in bringing the best scientists and users to russia to teach our students in russian
10:40 am
universities rather than encouraging our young people to study abroad we're negotiating qualification recognition with leading american and european universities alleviations in holding these negotiations we hope to create a mutual institutional understanding of not the state level but real interested to tional cooperation of a third group with the best foreign universities recognize degrees awarded by our best universities and i think that this is a more effective and positive way for us to be able to provide the best scientists from around the world to russia and the best young scientists to work in the leading world sectors without any problems with us. according to one rating they are talking diversity of moscow state universities seventy four percent of world to what extent is it objective or accurate the reason. any rating is subjective and any rating is open to manipulation you can use our university heads are offended by the placing but i tell them not to pay much attention to your priorities are different from the police there are many comparative criterion we
10:41 am
should choose those most important for us and that's base our reforms on how are things we set ourselves are seeking another member example every rating considers a citation he thinks of scientists working in a university in my opinion this is significant where scientists are not always enthusiastic about publishing in english the new version when i explain the simple facts of the country's image when your best scientific work was read and cited around the world looking up professors are paid by the state fair responsibility to enhance its aristide's through academic endeavor there is also an index of graduate success we always lose out in this respect because we simply do not know to what extent our graduates are successful if we are to prepare highly sought after professionals we should at least know about their career is a key university responsibility in the us to have specifically designed system for that and it was right it also promotes the university so in my opinion if we paid
10:42 am
more attention to those indexes we would have a higher position in the ratings. so thank you very much for this interview. thank you. question a nation. inside a container you have. and you can have anywhere from dozens up to hundreds of there's a huge market right now for cattle area clearance because there are a lot of countries in the world that are contaminated by unexploded ordinance. and so you got these come. unease and n.g.o.s that have basically sprung up that have an expertise to get rid of these weapons what are you as they go to these places they will hire local train the locals how to do the clearance let the locals basically take ownership because you know they have a vested interest in clearing their homes and they're putting themselves at risk every single day i think iraq there to clear areas and.
