Example text

A systemic reform of the vocational education system is needed, and the ongoing process of decentralization points to regional, rather than federal, solutions as the most appropriate. Page 4 Equity and Access The historical strength of Russian education was its commitment to equity and access, regardless of ethnic background, gender or geographical location. Secondary school elitism is not of course new, but it is especially fostered by the present fiscal climate, and can lead to a situation where special linkages between particular universities and feeder schools are cultivated from grade 10 onwards (and sometimes even earlier than grade 10).

Unless corrected soon, the harmful impact on educational quality and equity could be very serious. The purposes of this report are to analyze the nature of the current problems and to discuss policy options open to the Russian Government in its efforts to improve educational efficiency, preserving and even improving equitable access, without sacrificing traditions of academic excellence. This report is based on analysis of trends across the 89 Russian regions and case studies. The study analyzes General and first level Vocational Education under four main headings: (i) efficiency of resource use; (ii) quality; (jii) market relevance and (iv) equity.

The introduction of a national system of student assessment will entail the transparent administration of tests with the correct mixture of practical, oral and written components (including, where appropriate, computer-administered tests to ensure fairness and access). Consideration should be given to a decentralized system, with cross-regional branches, each one covering a number of regions and each having sub-regional testing centers. Page 8 The information needs of the various decision-makers at the federal and regional levels should be identified, and a set of basic indicators should be developed that will provide Russian policymakers with a baseline profile of the knowledge, skills and competencies of students.
