The article describes the modern Russian educational “landscape” where people with disabilities can realize their right to education. Based on the data provided in the Monitoring conducted by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation (data for 2015), to analyze teaching models for the students with disabilities, we have chosen the higher education institutions where a number of students with disabilities exceeds 30. The data from the Monitoring were supplemented with the information which came from the websites of these educational organizations. It has been revealed that most of the selected higher education institutions fail to address the educational needs of the students with disabilities (or do not indicate such an orientation thereto) and accurately articulate the educational format. The higher education institutions which implement specialized, integrated, and inclusive education models and a “transitional” model from specialized to inclusive education appear to be more systematic in their teaching approaches for the challenged students. However, such higher education institutions do not constitute the majority. The key findings in the analysis allow us to perceive that today there exists the system of learning and training students with disabilities, with inclusivity being a property of a particular higher education institution rather than the institute of higher education as a whole.
The increase of “friendliness” of the education system towards individuals with disabilities (people with health limitations), especially the development of inclusive education, is a relatively recent humanistic trend that has been set by the most economically developed societies and in which our country has been responsibly integrating for the last two decades. The article summarizes the results of the survey that was conducted in 2017 among NSU graduates with disabilities. The study was aimed at describing how higher education promotes acquisition of the social and physical space by individuals with disabilities, which means ensuring the social inclusion.
The aim of the presented research was the to study the everyday methods used for holidays’ construction and reproduction. The urgency of this case is closely connected to the problem of modern practices’ inconsistency, consumption society. It arouses from the hypothesis that the above-said theoretical assumptions probably cannot explain contemporary cultural change, while the holidays are constant cultural practices that can be used as the indices of change. The article describes the methods of constructing holidays and festive mood explicated in the study of actively celebrating citizens’ lifeworlds concerning the context of (post)modernity. Perception of holiday in the world of transforming and dying cultural practices consequently reaches personal and sensual basis. However, there is a lag between this perception and redefining some traditional aspects of celebrations. The holiday concept’s dualism develops into the problem of holiday’s instability as the fragment of the citizen’s lifeworld and the problem of contemporary society’s description in terms of G. Schulze’s «society of experience».
