By the end of primary school children acquire all the basic literacy and numeracy skills, but proficiency level of these skills varies greatly among children. SAM (Student's Achievement Monitoring) allows us to define the students’ proficiency level accurately. This article gives a brief overview of the toolkit, and describes the results of testing in one region of the Russian Federation. It also investigates the characteristics of the educational environment, which may be associated with the students’ test results.
The article describes the image of the village, created in elementary school textbooks. The research is based on the comparative perspective: we analyzes the content of textbooks of Soviet (1974-80), and post-Soviet period (2004-05). The analysis revealed in textbooks of the post-Soviet period the dominance of the rural environment under the urban one, of the rural labour in the village under all other types. In the post-Soviet textbooks the descriptions of village life and work of peasants are much less detailed and informative, than in Soviet textbooks. The presented portrait of the village is multicomponent (village is a breadwinner, a laborer, a source of vitality, "root system" of the citizen, the keeper of traditions), but the national romantic component is clearly dominated.
The present book is the result of the project International Comparative Study on Education, Career and Migrant Strategies of School Students from Rural Areas in Transition Countries initiated by UNESCO International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education (INRULED) and the Center for Applied Economic Research, National Research University Higher School of Economic (HSE) of Russia in 2010.
