MOSCOW, December 03, 20:49 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin supported the idea of teaching constitutional law in schools. Students of law departments can conduct such lessons.
“It will be good practice, just wonderful. You will find this interesting and this will be useful for children,” the president said at a meeting with students of law departments.
A woman student displayed to the president the drawings pupils of a Moscow boarding school had made at just such lesson to illustrate citizens’ rights. She said this year, when the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution is observed, such lessons are conducted in Russian schools by students, jurists, public figures, and statesmen. She asked the president that such practice should become permanent, as school pupils’ knowledge is insufficient, while they are eager to learn.
“Who can prevent you from making this practice permanent," the president asked. “I am all for it,” he said.
“Young people with professional knowledge and awareness of things can command the authority even higher than parental,” the head of state stressed. “Much can depend on such meetings and this is excellent practice,” the president said.
