MOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s new law on education that will enter into force on September 1 deprives the country’s science of young researchers, the president of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Vladimir Fortov, told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The document poses huge threat to Russia’s science,” he said.
The academician said under the new law the post-graduate education will be become “an educational stair step,” while previously it gave “an academic degree.”
“The new law demonstrates all contradictions in the activities of the Education and Science Ministry and the Russian Academy of Sciences,” he said. “In the past there was a rule, under which the ministry while taking its decision obligatorily sent it to finalize to the Russian Academy of Sciences. In this case the Education and Science Ministry decided everything on its own.”
The new law on education was adopted last December. It should replace two laws on education and on higher and post-graduate education. Under the law the post-graduate education will become an educational stage (after Bachelor’s and Master’s programme).
