BARNAUL, November 1 (Itar-Tass) —— Schools that do not have many pupils will not be closed, and their financing will not depend on the number of pupils, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said, when meeting with United Russia activists on Tuesday. "I have never supported closure of small schools at all cost," the president said, admitting that the number of schools in the country was reduced in recent years as a result of various processes, including closing of small ones.

"A school in a village is a centre of attraction. There is a school – there is a village. There is no school – the village has died," he said. So, small schools will be maintained, the president assured. The system to pay salaries in such schools will not depend on a number of pupils, he noted. There is another system, and it should be preserved. It must have a base part and a stimulating part, but the stimulus must not depend on a number of pupils, he noted.
