Among the dismissed - deputy ministers Alexander Klimov, Ekaterina Tolstikova and Alexander Povalko. Heads of leading departments also lost their seats: the information policy department (Anna Usacheva), the property department (Aleksandra Kharchenko), the department of civil service, personnel and business management (Vladimir Golubovsky) and the state policy department in the field of education of children and youth (Alexander Stradze). "Stradze, she fired first, then were fired people who were responsible for important areas of work of the ministry - PR, property issues and personnel," - RBC reports.
Vasilyeva does not intend to limit herself to administrative shifts alone - changes are coming in the education system itself, about which the new minister spoke on the eve of the Day of Knowledge in the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and during conversations with parents. Some of her statements immediately became a sensation — and a bitter pill for the liberal, pro-Western “fifth column”.
The keynote of Olga Vasilyeva's performance at all venues was the installation of the return of the educational component in the educational process. “I will do everything possible to ensure that extracurricular time is spent on educating and shaping a student as a person,” said Vasilyeva, adding that school teachers should devote extra time with students to educate them on citizenship, and not “train on the USE.”
Olga Vasilyeva also threatened to “sacred” for the advocates of “individual freedom from herself”, announcing plans to restrict free Internet in schools “I believe that in schools there should be a preventive substitute for Internet. So that the child is engaged in active activities, sports, music, in order to distract him from the constant desire to sit on the net all the time, ”the minister said.
Another important revelation of the minister was the promise to return compulsory labor lessons to school (now they are far from everywhere): “Without diligence, without skills that we owe first and foremost to family and school, without skills to work hourly, every second, to gain success from work we can live, ”the minister said in response to the return of labor lessons to school. - ““ Now this subject, which we both loved and called “work”, and which gave us the very skills that we carried throughout our lives, these are “technologies”. In 2017, it will be launched. Everything that concerns “doing with hands” and what really needs to be done with hands, because not only high technologies are the future, where there are buttons, buttons, buttons, this is great, but with our hands we should be able to do and teach it to everything ”.
Olga Vasilyeva also said that Russian schools will gradually refuse lessons on Saturday; the transition to the five-day school will not affect only the tenth and eleventh grades. The approach to the beloved offspring of educational reformers according to the State Department textbooks - the Unified State Examination will also change: for the first time this year there will be an oral part - the Russian language and literature, test tasks with ready answers in physics, chemistry and biology will be removed. “If they recognize the experience as successful, they will also think about graduation classes. After all, how many conversations were there about the advantages of the old, non-test system, when the student gave his answer personally to the teacher, ”Vasilyeva said about the USE.
The next crucial point was the decision to gradually return to a single standard of schooling and to minimize differences in programs: when moving from one region to another, schoolchildren often face completely new curricula. We hope that this applies primarily to the lessons. stories--- Patriots have been talking about the creation of a single history textbook for many years, President Putin gave the Ministry of Education a relevant task more than two years ago — but it has been sabotaged by Furmies — Lebanon and the like. The results of such sabotage can be observed in Ukraine — where, using false textbooks of history published on Soros's money, they raised a generation of mutants who did not remember the kinship, who pushed this part of the Russian world from its civilizational path into the chaos of civil war.
