The education of the last 30 years is a complete failure. Constitutional Court Judge

Judge of the Constitutional Court (CC) of the Russian Federation Konstantin Aranovsky shared his "dissenting opinion", in which he admitted the complete failure of the education reforms of the last 30 years and criticized the Bologna system. But the main thing is that he openly announced the "new stage" of the government's plans to optimize and already openly destroy higher education in Russia.

The judge of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation Konstantin Aranovsky presented his revelation in the only form available to him - through a “special opinion” expressed regarding the complaint filed with the Constitutional Court by former businessman Mikhail Tchaikovsky. In 2015, Mr. Tchaikovsky turned to the Voronezh Employment Center for help in finding a job. However, the officials refused to recognize him as unemployed and to assign an allowance: the man brought a passport and work book, and the employment center demanded a certificate "on average earnings from the last job" and "a document certifying qualifications." The man successfully challenged both claims in court. And last week, the Constitutional Court again supported Mr Tchaikovsky, stating that the absence of a diploma or other "qualification documents" should not limit "the right of citizens to protection from unemployment." That's just the story of Tchaikovsky turned out to be secondary here, because at the end of his decision, a "dissenting opinion" of the judge of the Constitutional Court, Konstantin Aranovsky, was added - this is the name of the statement in which a member of the panel of judges can express his personal position on the considered case, who, apparently, was simply very hot about the quality of training specialists by our universities.

In this "dissenting opinion", the judge said that, starting from the time of Yeltsin and ending with the Bologna system extended by our liberals from the Higher School of Economics, education in our country was increasingly depreciated. “Not everyone considers it useful to introduce the Bologna system, and many would prefer to do without it, as did, for example, German universities. Not everyone is convinced that the introduction of a Bachelor's and Master's program according to Bologna standards has increased the quality of education and that now Russian diplomas are recognized according to international standards, as expected. The countless resources that were spent on this could be spent for the benefit of science and for a decent salary for teaching.

Improvements in education have lasted thirty years, and their results are still controversial, so now, when so much has been spent, and confidence in diplomas has not increased, there is no reason to rely on ministerial decisions, the initiative of the administrations and the enthusiasm of activists. It is possible that now we will have to wait until the diplomas of the majority of universities and technical schools (lyceums, colleges, etc.) become convincing. Then it will probably be possible to re-discuss to what extent vocational education certifies access to professions and whether the exercise of certain rights should be associated with diplomas,”said Judge Aranovskiy.

Here, of course, a situation arises, which we had before in medicine, when the ministry unsubscribes about unprecedented successes, and then everyone shouts about the crisis in the industry. But all this has been known for a long time, but the plans of our government voiced by Aranovsky, to put it mildly, enter into a state of shock, because they are preparing not only the final division of society, but also the death of Russian higher education by turning students into Gref's "T-people" unable to do anything.

The judge of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation recognized the complete failure of education reforms

That is, there will be three levels of "higher education", where on the first one there will be "online courses", on the second "coaches" will chew these courses for students, and at the very top they will develop these courses. Where students will study science, especially in those areas where Russia is still among the world leaders, for example, in nuclear physics, is unknown. And how can you prepare a good nuclear physicist with online courses? No way.And we at the top understand this very well, because, as Gref said a little earlier, we no longer need scientists, we do not need narrow professionals, like surgeons or archaeologists - Russia needs an army of amateurs-button-dogs, or, as it is fashionable to call them, Te-people. Moreover, clearly divided by estates, where the poor are assigned the status of the poor, and so on. For the poor - online courses, so that they learn the fashionable words, for the middle ones - regional ones, so that they already know how to throw these words, and the relatively rich will make these words a "trend" and have some basic knowledge. As for the rich, they already today prefer to teach children abroad - they benefit from the crowd of degenerates who are treated by shamans and taught on YouTube - it is easier to manage such a crowd and "sell" the necessary goods and laws to them.

And the division of people is already being talked about openly. Just to remind: at the recent XXIII Congress of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) at the end of September, Gref said: “If we talk about public administration, new technologies will lead to the fact that the differences between states will be very strongly differentiated. The only thing that distinguishes states from each other is the effectiveness of state administration … We have drawn for ourselves three competencies that characterize the "man of the future." The first is a person who has a high degree of creativity. Second, this person has a well-developed systemic thinking. Agree that it is very rare to find a person who is very creative with systems thinking. Of the seven billion people, six billion will be weeded out. And the third component is the ability to achieve results. These three sieves, through which a large number of people pass at the entrance, ultimately a very small number remains in the funnel. " “People of the future,” according to Gref, are people whose knowledge is equally broad and deep in all spheres. "We all hunt for the same people, they are called differently - deep-people, T-people - when they have a lot of expertise in a particular area." Where he is going to put the remaining 6 billion people who do not belong to the "T-People", Gref did not specify. Apparently, later they will simply say about them that they did not fit into the market.

And exactly a year ago, he - German Gref - spoke out against highly specialized education as such. “We need all specialties, we need people of all gifts and talents. And we don't need schools of mathematics. In my opinion, this is a relic of the past. I am a categorical opponent of mathematical schools … This was the case in the Soviet Union, and it seems to me that this is not a very good experience,”emphasized German Gref, who received an excellent free education in the“bad USSR”.

Yes, Gref was criticized and ridiculed. It was only in 2013, when Kudrin began to rush about expert groups and round tables with his idea of ​​raising the retirement age, that they also laughed at him. And exactly a year ago, Kudrin laughed out loud with all of us. Now Gref has undertaken to promote the "optimization of education" and has already achieved discussion of his ideas at the government level. And the worst thing is that if he succeeds, then we will not even be indignant with anyone.
