Russian Education in 2020: a Model of Education for Innovative Economy. Material for Discussion
The article offers a platform for professional and public discussion of a long-term model for Russian education and what it will look like in 2020. The article does not pretend to give an ultimate description of this model, and presents only the most basic ideas. These ideas are meant to be discussed, but they can also serve as the basis for creating a road map for the realization of the new program. The purpose of the authors is to present their vision for Russian education and determine what changes are needed in Russian education so that it can successfully rise to the challenges from: the innovational model of the development of the Russian economy (Russia’s strategic choice); the social demands of the Russian population and the need to consolidate Russian society; the need to compete globally on the markets for innovations, labor and education.
