we used to be very proud of the soviet educational system we inherited would say that our sixth grade school student studies things that american students on study until four years into the university that's one of the reforms about what is going to change not only in the system but more importantly in the mentality. by pillock first of all we indeed used to have a good educational system of law and it was very good to the country we lived in a time and it had its flaws in such issues with the country changed completely those who had previously received a good education fails to adopt us because the lesson learned here is that as we reform the educational system students to adapt to change our world succeeded must be at the heart of. why we're doing it today our country changed back in the ninety's. because at any given time people pay either more or less attention to fit u.k. should the educational system underwent considerable reforms during the soviet era
as well it is worth noting go there in the one nine hundred eighty s. when the need for reforms was already there because the experience dramatic fans change but education was put on the back burner so to speak in the one nine hundred ninety s. what we need to change was acute the state lacks the necessary funds and resources to help and that's why by introducing a new law and education and giving educational institutions more freedom is the state itself withdrew from education both in terms of supporter and in terms of setting requirements and goals medication says. there was a lack of. educational reforms are being criticised by many. cloying state officials teachers students parents experts and their main point being that they were forms half failed what's your response to the. spirit of the living 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 education system is not good enough it 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 you remember how much discussion there was around the united states exam today public polls suggest that the majority of teachers are in favor of it as are the majority of students together with their parents who already took it those opposing it have typically never had anything to do with the exam at all they just read the press and have an impression something is wrong. so let's make a little more specifically they were afraid of heights that only compulsory subjects on the curriculum have a personal safety and security is it a legislation 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 first glance it looks
like a very odd list of subjects and quite logically one wants to ask why not a russian language or not history even our prime minister said in his speech that is a culture aning maybe it's worthwhile to revise this list a matter of fact x. what criteria did you use in defining them. because it. 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 offered it up for public discussion just 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 curriculum systems what will the student can choose arts or they can choose to work in industry or to follow a career in the performing arts as it would have gervase about the student should be fit and healthy therefore no matter what subjects they choose in considerable importance for themselves physical education and sports are of fundamental import
similarly to the global created a dangerous world we live in people must be able to deal with emergency situation which is measure for state or know what to do with god forbid a terrorist attack occurs and it is 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 from the subject list two different modules so many see problem solving a school based education but with a higher education they say that our higher educational institutions have coal and weight behind those in the developed world do you agree with. that the program i believe it's a global problem to me is that global education changes more slowly than the incredibly fast development we see in economics and the social sphere often problems of human innovation changes a rapid many fold eli and others grow disenchanted that's why anti social incidents
are on the rise it may explain growth in drug addiction because some try to deny the facts of what would change to avoid a life bringing new challenges demands and solutions we must prepare our children for that and perhaps we should start with preschool institutions and primary schools our higher education may not meet the challenges of the present because we are trying to find a solution by supporting the best institutes in the country by bringing up leaders who will reform the whole education system in the way with at this level we give our students more freedom to choose not to study with along with we've got to create opportunities for them once they've made their choice if a student chooses natural sciences we have a responsibility to provide takai education in this subject and we would like it to be the best in the world with today in some universities we provide this level of education but in others it's not yet but then changes and reforms are needed for the system and we need a couple about why do you want so many wealthy parents send their children to study
abroad the same thing with students from the last one of them necessarily as they receive a grant they leave the country to study abroad why do you think that is as up here . not everyone in 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 drank till just a few years ago young scientists who received. divisional education and experience of religion are starting to come about we have to create conditions for their work 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 natives of russia received the nobel peace prize in physics but they all
live abroad how can we stop the brain drain. we are making a great effort we're building laboratories raising salaries for young scientists we're inviting renowned scientists from around the world to create new laboratories in the country this process will take a long time we've lost a lot and now we're restoring it step by step your opinion is that we can't expect good results overnight the good we are seeing positive changes at every stage but there are negatives too and 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 fortunately very few people know about his life and we should retain our progress as much as we address probably the theater. in dallas personally david said that from now on russia will recognize the foreign university promise of the russian credentials are not recognize abroad so it 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 universities rather than encouraging our young people to study abroad go see a thing called the nation recognition with leading american and european universities and see asians ability in holding these negotiations we hope to create a mutually institutionalized standings not mistake level of real interest that usual cooperation of the third. when 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 young scientists from around the world to russia and the our best young scientists to work in the leading world centers without any problems with us. according to one rating the top university of moscow state university seventy force and a 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 place of you when i tell them not to pay much attention to it of course your priorities are different because there are many comparative criteria we should choose those most important for us and base our reforms on where are things we set ourselves rushing one another for example and every rating considers a citation edict of scientists working in a university level in my opinion this is significant our scientists are not always an easy ass to get by publishing in english the new version will explain that this is. 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 yes if if we want to prepare highly sought after professionals we should at least know about their career it's a key university responsibility why in the us to have specifically designed system
for that and just look at that was like it also promotes the university less so with my opinion but if we paid more attention to those indexes we would have a higher position in the ratings. so thank you very much for this interview. thank you. for sun this is just a parliament building in france. but sixty six years ago it was the final target. and the last major offensive for the lead on. its capture became the symbol of the fall of the fascist citadel. and the victory over nazi germany. the fall of berlin.

is still confident of making the london olympics. i don't think i'm a star of russian gymnastics i try not to pay attention to what i have won in the past i always put that behind me and look forward to new challenges in the future the field of a mosque or bent was far from strong of all the top names from china the usa and japan missing however there was still some around boosting performances from russia's next generation of stars such as sixteen year old ahmed mean to ever so much to build on her recent success at the european championships where she took gold and content in bruges because of her beat federer competitor it alexander paul bunyan to win the men's rings rather than the new year but on one hand i found competing here much easier than in the european championships as i am at home here i have the support of my home crowd who are all cheery on the russians on the other hand it was quite. and just getting back to full fitness i just want
a strong showing of the russian gymnastics and probably its most healthy state since i did nine hundred ninety s. pollution of says there's still a lot of work that needs to be done it rush hour to sweep the medals in london. we're not the strongest like we used to be with the f. against the likes of china in japan however the world championships are coming up and that will be a good indicator for plenty of positives for russia's gymnasts to take out of this event however old fans of the sport will be praying the van talisman idea will stop in and make a speedy recovery as she looks to continue her quest for the unpicked gold next stand richard i'm told me tante moscow. ok just before i go i can confirm the chelsea have secured second place in english premier league west ham they are relegated that's it for me for the. hungry for the full story we've got it first the biggest issues get
