The Problem of Conservatism and Development in the Russian School System
The article analyzes the processes and results of modernization of the Russian school system. It is shown, what factors were caused by goals of educational reforms in the 2000s: The devaluation and condemnation of the methods of teaching in the Soviet school during the Perestroika era, the neglect of the high performance of Soviet schoolchildren, the choice of a liberal direction in the modernization of the general education system related to the political objectives of WTO (World Trade Organization) accession, where education is a service sector. The data on unsatisfactory educational results of modern Russian schoolchildren are given. Conclusions about the need to preserve the conservative trend in modern general education have been drawn.
