“The main problems of our higher education lie in material and technical resources. I was abroad and have seen the level and the facilities these universities have. My daughter is on her way to graduate from a university abroad, and, sadly, she is not looking for the ways to find high-quality Master’s degree program in Russia anymore,” said Petr Tariko during the forum of the All-Russia People’s Front (APF) called “Quality education for the Country” that began in Penza on Tuesday, October 14.
At the same time, the BSU vice-principal expressed his belief that the panel and round table discussions that will be taking place during the APF forum will help shape the new vision of the Russian higher education.
“The topics for the discussions speak for themselves. Here we have the plans to debureaucratize the school, to organize village schools, to develop education technologies, and, what’s curious, the quality of higher education and its perspectives,” Petr Tariko noted.
