MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Branches of Moscow and the Moscow region’s communists organised in Moscow a rally against the government’s reform of the education system.
First Deputy Chairman of the Communist Party’s Central Committee and first deputy speaker of the State Duma Ivan Melnikov said “the authorities have decided to damage the system of higher education” by introducing criteria of universities’ effectiveness, which, he said, “have nothing to do with training of specialists.”
First Deputy Chairman of the party’s commission on education Oleg Smolin said the party “demands an educational revolution, as lack of a scientific-educational breakthrough” will affect negatively the country in 25 years already.
The rally participants adopted a resolution calling the “State Duma and the government to reject the governmental bill on education, which affects those who study and those who teach.”
The rally lasted for about an hour, it featured about 500 participants. Organisers of the action thanked the police for the order they provided.
