"Wonderful School Years" - Memories of the Soviet School

117

For some reason, I have very few photos from my school days, and those that exist are of poor quality. But this photo is very revealing. Made just in our 6th school, but for some reason I don't recognize the class. (Photo by A. Shvarev)


Each of us had our own school and our own memories of it. So I have them like that, although, of course, something has been forgotten ...

School years are wonderful,
With friendship, with a book, with a song,
How quickly they fly!
They can not be turned back.
Will they fly without a trace?
No, no one will ever forget
School years.
(Evgeny Dolmatovsky. School years)

Memories of the past. Not so long ago, VO published an article by one of its regular authors on the situation in our education. The point is that everything is bad, and we must go back to the USSR. Probably, it should be clear to everyone that it will not work out in any way, because you cannot even enter the same river twice, and besides, we very often idealize our past. Memory is so arranged that most of the bad is forgotten, and all the good remains to us as a reward for the bad we have endured. Be that as it may, everyone has their own experience of school apprenticeship. I think it is quite interesting. That is why I thought that within the framework of the cycle "Memories of the Past" it is quite possible and even worth telling about him ...


An old acquaintance "Primer" ...

So, I went to school at the age of eight, and all because at seven right before the first of September I got sick. And besides, in the 6th secondary school, to which I was attached in the district, the teacher who was recruiting first grade refused to take me! She was my mother’s friend (there were all my mother’s friends, she started working there with them after college) and ... said that “she does not need such a developed student, he will be too much trouble”. Well, yes, of course, by that time they had already read a lot of books to me, I drew well for my age and ... was a talkative boy, so as a teacher I understand her very well.


He was replaced by this "Native speech"

And a year later, like it or not, but they had to take me. But I was already in the class of another "mother's friend". It turned out that our school is not simple, but "special", and from the second grade we will have English. Therefore, in the first one they will “look” at us, and whoever does not study well will be transferred to a regular school, because he will not be able to withstand the increased workload. I did not understand any of this and began to study. I started sitting with a girl whose dad was in prison, which scared me very much, but there was nothing to do. We wrote first with a pencil, and then continued with an insert pen, certainly with a student's pen. At home I had a whole collection of feathers, I inserted "Rondo-86" (I liked it very much!) And immediately got a reprimand in the class - "Only" student "and be like everyone else!"

"Wonderful School Years" - Memories of the Soviet School
Then she became so ...

The ink was kept in non-spill ink tanks, and the nib was cleaned with round cloth pens in the form of circles sewn together - our first task in labor class. At recess, we used the same pens to play crazy - tossed our feet into the air many times. But the teacher said that this would make us write, and we stopped.


And so ...

Since before studying I was taken to the Crimea, and there I watched the film "The Three Musketeers" with Mylene Demonjo, I immediately decided to tell it to the boys in the classroom and ... and so I "voluntarily" signed up to be a storyteller: at recess I got up in a wall niche, I was surrounded listeners, and I told them! First, the movie "The Three Musketeers" (then, when we finally got it!), Laurence Olivier's book "Viking Campaign", then something else ... In a word, it went on for quite a long time.


At the entrance to our school. Then he looked like this ... (Photo by A. Shvarev)

But they had to enroll me in the school library by force, and they could do it only in May! Cause? And I had a closet full of books at home, and as soon as I got sick, my mother and grandfather immediately read them to me: "The Fight for Fire", "Professor Dowell's Head", "The Island of Dead Ships", "The Invisible Man" - all this there were books of my school illnesses that I liked very much. Although now I understand that this was not quite the reading that a first grader would have required. By the way, I read Russian folk tales before the fifth grade and was very surprised how interesting they were and why I had not read them before. Of course, they read me both "Buratino" and "The Cat's House", but there were many books of quite adult people. For example, after watching the movie "Amphibian Man" I demanded a book and, of course, my mother read it to me. That is, I myself did not like to read, but ... I fell in love when I was enrolled in the school library. By the way, we were required to keep a diary of extracurricular reading, with our favorite quotes and drawings. Can you imagine all the horror of my teacher when she met the story "Maxwell's Equation" or the story "The Clay God" by A. Dneprov with a drawing of flint people with knives in their hands.

In the second class, our contingent has changed. All C-graders were removed and replaced with excellent students from other schools. We were only the second enrollment, so we didn't really know about our school, but rumors had already spread, so there were no problems with the recruitment of students. Well, today it has become very difficult to get into this school! And they don’t take it “in the district” at all.

I remember that for the first lesson we were asked to bring a mirror and were tortured for a long time with the correct position of the tongue. I learned the word "looking-glass" and was very proud and pleased with it. But what's strange is that I don't remember anything at all about what and how we were taught these three years. What I learned, I also cannot say. English teachers were constantly changing. But there was a truly holy woman among them - well, outwardly, a typical Englishwoman, even her nose was with a hump, Lyudmila Fyodorovna, who after every my illness, and I was sick often and for a long time, always worked with me additionally and completely free of charge. And I was then pretty stupid with regard to the language, I did not really understand why it should be taught at all, in a word, I gave her a lot of trouble.


Opening of the first English textbook

However, in elementary school, I also spoiled my “mother’s friend” thoroughly, and not only with drawings in my extracurricular diary.


And this is a page from it ...

Once they came to check her from the district. And she ... painted the board with colored crayons, hung it up with sheets of paper, which had to be removed in turn. And ... she began to demonstrate her skills to those who came. Then I really wanted to write something with colored crayons too. Raised his hand and she called me. But with excitement, I mixed everything up and sat down, ashamed of her reproach. I sit, chew paper, so that at recess I can spit through a tube, and I sit alone and on the last desk because of my height. Therefore, it was me who was hooked up with one of the female inspectors. So she asks me: “Why are you so confused? I've never seen anything like this in her lessons, right? " As a pioneer, I answer the truth: "Aha," I say, "this is the first time!" "Why chew paper?" "Spit out of the tube!" Again, honestly told her everything, but what's wrong with that?


And this is how the area in front of the 6th grammar school looks like today. I planted the far right pine tree together with the guys in our class, and that's how it has grown!

And then - oh horror! She takes the paper and writes a letter, bends it over, gives it to me and says - "Give it back to grandfather!" I was scared, but ... I gave it away! And there it was written that "I am your student, Pyotr Konstantinovich, I met your grandson, and I really liked him, a very honest and versatile boy ..." True, this honesty came to me sideways. Apparently, at the "debriefing" they told our "cool" something unfriendly. Because I came to class and let's fix the court and reprisals. And it turned out that I and my long tongue were the main culprits in her fiasco. But I did not know then the Arabic proverb that the guilty tongue is cut off along with the head, and besides, I was trained to tell adults only the truth.

Then, already in the fourth grade, I offended her absolutely. We began to study natural history, and there is a picture of the Lenin nuclear-powered ship. So she began to rub our glasses on that it was built of large oak trees (!), And in front of it there was a steel strip - to chop ice! Well, as I subscribed to the magazine "Young Technician" from the second grade, I knew how it really is. I decided that she was joking, so he said. And she told me: "Iron sinks, but the tree floats!" Well, she laughed. And the students added. Children, however, are many real bastards, they live according to the principle of the 11th commandment - "push the falling one", then they "bumped" enough ... And it was autumn, puddles, the next day I brought a can of sprat, a bunch of nuts, bolts and started right in front of the school to demonstrate to all "doubters" the "law of Archimedes". It was then that she spotted me ... And the guys also shout: "And Slava shows us how iron floats!" In a word, it was like this: “You undermine the authority of the teacher! Aren `t you ashamed?!" And I am ashamed, of course, ashamed that this fool undertakes to talk about what she does not know, and after all, she is a teacher, but I just cannot say that. Oh, how many times she called both mom and grandmother to school, complaining that I didn’t listen to her, I looked out the window and wandered in the clouds, and they made the decision to “litter my head,” but of course they have nothing of this happened!


Natural history textbook. About the nuclear-powered ship he has there, inside!

But then elementary school for me ended, and I went to the fifth grade. Not an excellent student, but also without triples. I had a B in English, but for some reason I just don't remember what they taught me in three years of study. I also don’t remember the textbooks we were taught, although they all featured a very beautiful tank! We started writing with automatic pens with an open nib (only open, closed!) From the second grade. But when we got ballpoint pens, for some reason they didn’t stick to our memory ...

They fed us breakfasts from first to fourth grade. Moreover, the tables were already laid for our arrival. Different types of cereals, mashed potatoes with a cutlet or sausage, a freshly baked bun or pie, compote, jelly, tea, cocoa ... Something I didn't like, for example, butter in semolina, and I diligently ate it around. But overall, the food was delicious. At the school, where my granddaughter already studied today, she also ate at school for the first three years. But then the food there became so ... strange that it became impossible to eat it. The classroom demanded that everyone eat, have some kind of payment cards, but we just did not react to this. I just got up and said at the parents' meeting that my granddaughter, "This will not be there!" They convinced me that I was wrong, and they lagged behind. It is hardly worth quoting her stories about school meals here (these are still my memories!), But it is absolutely certain that in schools it has become many times worse than in my time. Although ... many parents have children "it" eat, and for the most part no one complains about the quality of food. So poor that this bang is also bread? No, looking at their cars and mobile phones in their hands, as well as gold rings with stones on their fingers, you can’t say that ... So the point is different.

To be continued ...

        I went to school much later - in 1967, but in principle everything that is present in the article is familiar. The most pleasant impressions of that time. True, out of 10 school years I studied in boarding schools for two and a half years. But even there was a good level - teachers outside school hours, classroom shifts in the kitchen, excellent food, medical attention.

          The difference between the late 60s and the late 70s is very big. Well, at least what the author writes for me is mostly unfamiliar. I went to the first grade in 71st.
          By the way, primary school teachers (I have never seen male teachers) were mostly poorly trained in technology. Ours, for example, told us about the events in Damanskoye and said that ours launched rockets, which were simply made of metal ingots from Chinese tanks. I believed in it somewhere until the 4th grade, until I began to read to the holes Youth Technology and Science and Life, since one of the uncles got files from somewhere in the mid-60s.

          I went to school in the sixties. I remember the monstrously filthy toilet - a tiny log house in the school yard, with a torn off door and a window under the stream, without electric lighting. I remember the always smoking stove in the classroom and the cold in the morning. And also - a drinking water tank with a mug on a chain. Autumn and spring slush on the streets without asphalt, along which in the dark you had to trudge to school, wash tarpaulin or rubber boots in a trough put on the street ...
          But in contrast to this, there are many excellent teachers, school friends, a sports school with a summer camp, the Volga - at that time it was still full of fish and not defiled ...
          Everyone, probably, has the same compote of memories, which is mixed with good, and sad, and funny.

      Admission to school in such cases went through the RANO if the director did not want to decide on the spot. You just had to go there. November is a month and I didn’t walk like my best friend was born 8 days later than me.

            In other subjects, logarithms and the periodic table were not useful to me, but in other subjects, having spent 17 years at the university, I think I know more than any school teacher in humanitarian subjects.

              If you are a humanitarian, and you know more than any other school teacher, why so many mistakes were made in such a short text? I'm not a humanist and it hurts my eyes.
              I'll tell you an amazing story from the USSR. Somehow our best translators who translated books of famous Americans were invited to the USA. And the Americans were upset, none of them spoke English. At all, they did not understand what they were being asked and what they were saying. It was an embarrassment.

                I type on my phone “paws are big - buttons are small”. I type comments in the subway or in the car - I don't bother with the rules of the Russian language. And there is someone to edit my texts in the service.
                As for a foreign language, the last time I corrected a teacher during advanced training was in 2018. I have been communicating with native English speakers at the level of “bring it, bring it, bite on the heel” since 1999. We understand nothing of each other.
                As for school teachers - rarely does anyone of them set the task of studying science in their subject. The institute course is the highest category and stop. Further professional deformation.
                A university teacher, in order to move on, has to at least defend a thesis. If the topic is related to "history of law", then present the amount of information that is known, for example, an associate professor of a university and a law teacher.
                In addition, given that my daughter graduated from school this year, and Vyacheslav Olegovich is already a granddaughter .... He has already repeated the school program three times, and my wife and I twice !!! laughing
                And the last thing, denouncing someone in something. Specify your example? Where, who, when, and so honestly - a pearl at the level of "grandma from the village of Gadyukino."

            Surely a threesome, that's why you argue so.
            I finished in 81, I still haven't mastered the English spoken language, somehow I didn't need it. I read in my specialty (IT specialist) almost fluently, I may not understand about one of ten words.
            In other subjects, knowledge is an order of magnitude higher than what was given, for example, to my children, who studied after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    I, Vyacheslav Olegovich, studied later - in
    80s. And I had a school, also specialized - for the last two years, classes were split up and created an additional one with a focus on physics.
    I understood this topic and fought off such a "good". Stayed in "simple". In principle, I did not lose - there were no preferences for admission to the university then, and it was a day to cram the enhanced program.
    But I was very lucky with my classmates! Somehow it happened that we became so good friends that we still communicate, correspond, meet, whenever possible.
    And, the saddest thing, we often inform each other that we are getting smaller ...

        Yes, school friends aren't always for life. However, over the years it happens that you begin to communicate more with those with whom you talked much less at school than with friends.
        And the funny thing is, sometimes with those with whom I studied in primary school and then for many decades did not see at all.

    Oh yeah! There were content and quotes on the left, a drawing on the right.
    Each self-respecting girl also had a songbook, with songs (eating-but), poems, drawings, pictures and other daisies)). However, the boys also had, but much less romantic, songs plus chords. Moreover, the chords were written - БЗ (big asterisk), МЗ (small asterisk), BR (Barre) smile Later they learned to denote it more competently - Am, Dm, etc. smile

    Familiar textbook covers.
    I don't know when you went to school. I'm from 62 to 72. I also remember the first ballpoint pens, one at a time.
    But ..... in all the years we have never been fed breakfast or lunch. True, in the year 68, a kiosk was opened, where you could buy a bun and nothing but tea, let alone a sausage.
    True, I studied at a rural school, albeit in a regional center.
    I don’t know how in other rural schools, and on whom it depended.

      In our country, up to grade 5, they wrote only "with an asterisk", while elders were allowed to use a pen "with a dot", a fountain pen in grade 10, and even then not everywhere.

The food was simple but hearty, the portions were good. The only thing is that the dining room was organized in the old school. Therefore, we went from the new, modern building to the old building, a distance of about a kilometer. But it was not a burden.

    At recess, we used the same pens to play crazy - tossed our feet into the air many times.

    Yes, you could not play with them at recess, Shpakovsky, because you had to sew a lead weight to them, otherwise it would fly incorrectly. And in general, for this game, they specially created "tough" or "fluff", which were made from a round piece of fur with a lead weight attached to it, which was cast or cut from a cable. This will be confirmed by many who had marks on the inside of their school boots and who remember this Soviet game.

        Most likely you have never made it yourself, because it was a great art to make a "hard" one. Firstly, it was necessary to choose the right leather with fur, sheared or unprocessed, and even with the original colors, if an old collar came across, for example. Secondly, for correct aerodynamics, it was necessary not only to verify the weight of the lead weight, but also to give it a certain shape, with two or four holes. Thirdly, choose the right copper wire from telephone wires from 0,5 to 1,2 mm and screw it very carefully so that the twist does not scratch the boot and does not destroy the screwed skin. And only after that it was possible to show it to your friends, who immediately determined whether it was possible to play it, or it was bad for playing. Eh, Shpakovsky, you don't know all the intricacies of this old fun, but it's good that you mentioned it, though out of place.
        And not a single normal kid would ever think of making a "tough" thing out of a pen-cleaner - at least for yourself, figure it out.

          Yes, I did not do it, but I saw how our boys in the class played it. I held it in my hands, and, apparently, it just seemed to me like a pen. And there was definitely something heavy in her. But there was definitely no fur. Apparently in different places it was arranged differently.

That is why the methodology of teaching English, like German (French), wanted to leave the best. One thing I can say for sure: more than 70% of people did not use this knowledge of foreign languages. In this regard, "polyglots" are representatives of national minorities who spoke Russian and their native language ...

    Mme. The topic is rich. Let's just say I will say one thing that I personally did not like very much in the Soviet education - school. There was also a special school, also English from the 2nd grade. To be honest - in 11th in English. And I And almost all my classmates, with the rare exception of children of diplomats (with practice and with tutors), are oak-oak. I sincerely believed that I was simply stupidly incapable of languages. Bo on the teacher in any way - they were different. The funny thing is, after a few years (I did not immediately enroll in a university, I had to chat a lot), when even that little thing that I used to cut in English was forgotten ... 24 hours a week. From the first year (ie the next year) I already taught English at the same department # 22 at the same faculty, first as a second teacher (there are 4 of them per group of 2-12 people). Just what is the point - there is a difference - from 15 to 2 (10) grade 11-2 hours a week to ruin a no-brainer and whether to teach in a year? And small ones are even easier to learn, they organically grasp the pronunciation, and, most importantly, the very logic of constructing phrases. But 4-2 lessons per week will not help this - the student even manages to lose motor articulation skills

              And here you see how "Natural Science" responded to you. After all, a pupil at school is the first to meet pine and spruce precisely at the "Natural Science". Then a little more on botany and geography. In the 4th grade, they got a mark, but now it backfired

              And forests meet with trees !!! You go to the forest, then from childhood there is a chance to get to know it. Do not go to the textbook of natural history will not help.

    Soviet education fulfilled its main function: to pull out 90% of the population at the time of 1917) from the level of 3 classes of the Central School of Education to a certain arithmetic mean. But! As I wrote to the last article and wrote in the comments, today there is no problem - if the task was to "catch up and overtake", then the school system would be different. As for personal memories of the Soviet school (I caught it quite a bit), then I remembered something, how my mother taught me to write and read at the age of 5, and so I on the 3rd day of school, at recess, and signed albums for drawing the whole class, for which he was harshly scolded by the class teacher and, for some reason, was forwarded to the head teacher for a conversation. It is clear that this is an episode and a trifle, but how many such scoops were in that system. And it is not necessary to copy it stupidly today, otherwise you will get an even more "one-pop" generation.

      Probably, he wrote the letters non-canonically. I also knew how to read and write before school, but I wrote a number of letters in a completely different way from what they later taught in grade 1.

    For some reason, I have very few photos from my school days.

    He studied at 2 schools. In each at the end of the school year, a professional photographer came and for the parents' money took 2 photographs: an art one, A4 format - a student and a class teacher, and a regular (but also large format) - a group photo of the whole class.
    Somewhere from the 3rd or 4th grade, the students got cameras: Smena-12, Smena -8M (I have Smena-8M (15 rubles) appeared in grade 5, 1975, is still alive, categorical water trips in Karelia and Siberia went well in the 80s and 90s), Seagull. Here went amateur photos. We printed ourselves in the photo circle of the House of Pioneers.

    Author, what year did you go to school? I personally also walked for a year, because I was born in October ...

    I, like Vyacheslav Olegovich, also went on a walk. In the early 60s (in 1961-1962 - with a 100% guarantee, they took those who turned 1 on September 7. I was born on December 8, 1954, and went to school when I was already 3 years old without 8 months

    After grade 1, the school was closed for renovations and we were transferred to another school, a little further. And as an experiment from the second grade I was English (whether it was in other schools - I don't remember)
    The first two years we still had the old uniform: tunics, trousers, belts and caps. Only in the second did we have a student who came from another city. He already had a new form. Jacket, pants ...
    I don’t remember food in the first grades, but in the next (I already studied in Ukraine) I remember. To eat quickly we usually went to the buffet. They took a glass of tea and bread with a cutlet or something else, or a biscuit. But in Ukraine, the language (English) at school began in grade 5, and in the same grade 5 at the end of the year there were exams at school. In 5-6 EMNIP there are 2 subjects, in 7-8 - already 4 or 5. By the way, in Ukraine, like the 10th grade in Stavropol, there is also school # 6.
    A fountain pen was allowed to write at the end of the 2nd grade, but not everyone, but who had good handwriting. And so - an inkwell, and a fountain pen.
    I also started reading early, the library at home was very decent, hundreds of 2 volumes at the beginning of the 60s. Sometimes he also told films or science fiction, but not at school, but before the cinema in the House of Officers. especially if the session was delayed for technical reasons (for example, blackouts)

    Quote: Aviator_
    Textbooks all my time, even English for the second grade. From it, the rhyme Why do you cry, Willy?

    I remember too. EMNIP
    Why do you cry, Willy?
    Why do you cry?
    Why, Willy, Why, Willy, Why, Willy, Why?

    I remember also taught in English "Solar Circle" ....

    Out of luck for you however

    Probably...
    Perhaps this was due to the fact that the schools
    were garrison, wives worked as teachers
    officers, and this had its own specificity.
    And the teachers from the city just openly hated
    officers' children.

    I was lucky with the teachers. Not with everyone, of course, but I remember some of them even now. The schools were not garrisoned (maybe that's why), they were lucky. that my father served in cities where there were comprehensive schools. And so in the class of 40 percent there were children of military personnel.
    Our classroom taught the Ukrainian language and literature. Somewhere in class 4, a decree was issued at the ministry level, where the children of military personnel were allowed not to learn the language in the host republic. But they sat in the classroom, did their homework most often, which was not a concern. Maybe due to the fact that they did not teach, they memorized better than those who taught. The classroom at the lesson of literature was sometimes brought to the point that she said:
    "Now I will raise one of the" foreigners "(as she called us, who did not learn language and literature), they will tell and let you be ashamed." And yes, sometimes that's exactly what happened

    I would not say that everything was wonderful there, but in comparison with the current school, in ours they brought up and taught, although we also sometimes freaked out so much that looking from the current bell tower of age, we should have given a good slap or a slap on the head.

    And no one says it was wonderful. There was everything. And there were fights, and the teachers were sometimes mocked, putting the mixture so that it exploded when the chair was moved. But still you remember school with nostalgia

    About the natural history teacher amused. Nice anecdote.
    I remember at our school there was a "physicist" in the 5th grade, even the junior pupils were chilling her, she was weak in character. But no one told such nonsense, really something, but they had literacy within the school curriculum.
    And yes, about the uselessness of foreign lessons, you are correct. Although we did not have a special school, the bosses made a lingraphone room for us. With headphones, glass booths and other gadgets, just like in the movies. True, this miracle lived for two years, or even less. One of 2 tape recorders ("spring") broke down before the start of the school year. But the teaching method is just a disaster. Five years of German lessons have gone nowhere. However, like 2 more years at the university, I understood and remembered more in a couple of months of preparation for graduate school. But here, apparently, the problem with motivation. That is why a Soviet person was foreign.
    And everything else strongly depended on a particular teacher, who could keep order in the classroom and cost a dialogue with the students, that subject and the students knew better.
    I remember sitting on history like mice, and for example, in biology, they could start a fight between themselves, and leave the classroom in the middle of the lesson ... and talk with the Trudovik about Afghan, when they had not written about it in the newspapers.

    I completely agree. An English teacher at the institute said the following in the first lesson. "You will have to study for 4 years. In any case, you will learn grammar by the 4th year, and I want to teach you to communicate in the language."
    I did it all as a game. Two portrayed foreign correspondents, one - a translator, the rest - Soviet citizens. The latter could consult with the "translator" on how to correctly construct a phrase. "to foreigners only among themselves. And so at each lesson, taking into account the rotation. Topics were not limited. By the end of 1 year, they already spoke fluently on different, albeit fairly simple topics."

    Whatever it was, but in the Soviet school they GIVEN knowledge, and now they are more and more testing it ...

    At the lessons of geography, EMNIP this 5th grade passed the topic "border of Europe and Asia." Of course, no one remembered the first time. The teacher said that she would devote the lesson to this question and ask everyone. Well, who does not learn .... Learned. 53 years have passed, and I still remember how "precisely and visibly" they invested knowledge ...

    Again, the "one-armed Posner" gave birth to an opus about how "it" was ....
    PS Some literary illustration for this opus .... wassat
    - "I am Pound," he repeated with feeling, "I am ninety years old. I have been sitting for others all my life. This is my profession - to suffer for others.
    - Ah, are you a figurehead?
    “Yes,” said the old man, shaking his head with dignity. - I am the chairman of the Pound. I've always sat. I sat under Alexander the Second "Liberator", under Alexander the Third "Peacemaker", under Nicholas II "Bloody".
    And the old man slowly bent his fingers, counting the kings ....
    This short speech lasted for a relatively short time - half an hour. Listening to Pound, Panikovsky was moved. He took Balaganov aside and whispered with respect:
    - Immediately you can see a person from an early time. "

    some ideal student from an ideal school, nerd or what? When I was studying, first of all I was bored, I looked out the window and dreamed, the teachers understood this, so they always put me far from the window, they said that I was always absent, I was studying lazily according to the principle that they will put a three anyway, where they go. But by the 10th grade, he brought the average 4, he was always the best at solving problems, if the problem is difficult, then two people, I and another excellent student, could solve it, he died long ago. In general, there are no good memories of the school, and the first thing that the author did not note is that the crime and cruelty inherent in the Soviet godless school, now this is less. the second is a rather boring program, but no worse than now, the third is disunity in the class ... What have you learned? to survive in a cruel crowd, to stay afloat, to be no lower than in the middle, to be a betta, so as not to break, not to fall into the scale, and what I saw betrayal, cruelty, stupidity among which one had to be cunning so as not to run over. Later in the university, general drunkenness and debauchery during extracurricular hours also turned out to be out of the trend of the surrounding crowd, life was as gray as a b / w TV of three programs. and unpromising in an emotional sense (if there is no God). So they poured her with vodka and debauchery. They tried to shove me into a vocational school and the harmful teacher wrote "a boy with average abilities, but has his own opinion on each issue," and how did she find out, I learned to hide this opinion, in another school they said that not every vocational school would be accepted with such a characteristic ... Well, we made me leave school, I didn't go to vocational school. Dad was afraid of the head of the Rono like fire. and Mom had super clues in the Navy and the first degree of secrecy, and even in the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU they knew about her work ... during my studies I changed 4 schools ... so I can judge the state of not one, but the system,

    In the first grade in 1962. He studied at the model room with a swimming pool and the Order of Lenin under the director.
    It's like comparing life in the USSR and now. There was enough crap both here and there ...

    They drank, smoked, but in the 10th grade they chipped in without a teacher and the whole class went to Brest.On the train (reserved seat) they drank and smoked again, but at the Brest Heroes Memorial in the fortress they stood silently and without hats (in winter).

    They never used obscene language in front of girls, never heard anything like that from them. Although we had girls in the 9th grade who were hiding from the scheduled examinations of the gynecologist, we had such examinations regularly at school.

    Our exemplary school was often visited by foreign delegations. I didn’t like the American schoolchildren - they behaved like characters from the movie "Republic of SHKID" + took pictures of everything and everyone. Found in our school some idiots from elementary grades and for a pack of gum they took pictures of them in clown poses.
