To begin with, we present a selection of headlines from various Russian publications, to once again feel how happy the Russian people are with the introduction of the Unified State Exam for naturally unbiased and certainly objective assessment of the knowledge and skills of our graduates.
Arguments and Facts: "On the Internet, we found some of the ready-made tasks for the exam in literature and geography".
RIA News: "In social networks offer to buy CIMs and tickets for the exam before the exam".
Moscow Komsomol: "A member of the Commission on the Unified State Exam in Voronezh solved the tasks of students via MMS".
Utro.ru: "Docent found hanged after the scandal with the exam."
Газета.ру: "The prosecutor's office of Stavropol appealed to the UK after the scandal with inquiries for the exam."
Lenta.ru report: "Livanov did not find anything terrible in the USE leaks".
NTV: “In social networks they trade USE tasks in geography”.
First channel: "EGE-tourism: on the eve of the examinations, schoolchildren of large cities were massively transferred to rural schools".
You can continue more and more. A whole avalanche of information with a clearly negative color, dedicated to the Unified State Examination, literally overwhelmed Russia. If some time ago (before the universal introduction of the Unified State Examination) to get a high score on the exam was prestigious, today it comes to the fact that the prosecutor's office is checking the so-called 100 scores, almost everyone individually. It would seem, why all these checks, really diligent graduate can not answer all the exam questions correctly. Yes, he can, but here again not personal knowledge of a single student, but other precedents come to the first place. There are many. Starting with the Dagestan "experts" of the Russian language, who literally "bundles" wrote the exam only for 100 points, and ending with the "sick" 11-graders of Stavropol, who, as it turned out, are so sick that they can not pass the exam on a general basis, but but on special grounds they can pass it no less than a hundred points.
On the “Military Review”, the EGE theme is raised quite regularly. The reason is simple. Exam frankly can not cope with its task. In pedagogical groups it is difficult to find a person who would be satisfied with the modern United State Exam. And discontent is truly ambitious and diverse. The main reason for dissatisfaction is that such a final exam is a banal self-deception, which the interested persons are trying to expose as a joy for national education. Radiation? Well, I do not! How can we talk about joy when the task of the exam is not at all in an objective and impartial assessment of the competences of the student, but in giving the student the opportunity to cross the barrier through some suitable means. And they “roll over” through it differently. Someone is solely on their own, as they are accustomed to gnawing on granite of science without outside help, and someone through a whole network of various kinds of assistants, consultants, witnesses, and others. Here we are ready to go on all heartburns in order to earn a certain point for ourselves. At the same time, many graduates are a priori sure that without outside help they will not pass this exam in any way. Not everyone is ready to understand that the tasks of the Unified State Exam in recent years have greatly eased. Some kind of close to the subconscious fear rules the minds of many schoolchildren who enter the classroom for the Unified State Examination just on the scaffold ... The psychological factor here, perhaps, is the main one. That is what fraudsters of all stripes use.
Some publish answers to tests on the Web, trying to increase the attendance of their Internet sites, others sell ready-made solutions, others offer their services as an assistant when taking the exam, the fourth generally enter the audience under the guise of students. And if these were isolated cases, then everything could be attributed to the theory of probabilities ... They say, well, anything can happen - fraudsters and rogues are in any sphere of life activity. But the fact of the matter is that the very system of conducting the current state examination gives rise to whole branched fraudulent structures around it. It spawns across the country. There is no region in which the scandal connected with the USE would not manifest itself.
In this, let's say, business (and the business here is still some kind: from preparatory tutoring to that very criminal assistance directly during the exam) tens of thousands of people are employed. As can be seen from the same headings presented above, both the schoolchildren themselves and the members of the “impartial” examination boards are involved in the business. It is perhaps not even the Audit Chamber and all fiscal authorities put together to estimate the scale of the money turnover in this area. One thing is obvious: business is often associated with a criminal orientation, which is not only in, say, the specificity of earnings, but also in the fact that for a certain number of graduates their knowledge may not be assessed for a number of reasons. Thus, the folded system strikes at the present of the country - at its economy, but most importantly - at its future, since the same “expert” 100-balloon, which passed the Examination State Exam on the certificate, is a time bomb that can jerk into the most unexpected moment. Can the person who himself offered money for a certain result on the Unified State Examination in the future refuse a bribe if, God forbid, he turns out to be in a leading position. But it will turn out! .. Those who are accustomed to do everything themselves and achieve results by their own mind and diligence are unlikely to occupy chairs in high offices (with rare exceptions), but how many children in the country are deputies, mayors, prosecutors, heads of customs administrations and other officials whose name is legion. And all these gentlemen for their children want a better life - to the chairs heated by their fifth points ... They will go to any trick, if only the child passes the exam so that the doors of only the best world universities open before him. And they open up like that Sim-Sim ...
So, it turns out that the objective USE is a big fiction that solves the tasks of a certain circle of people? The case when honesty is a big vice. It turns out that we don’t need honesty ourselves: it’s much easier to “give a paw” than to tune yourself (your children) to high-quality education with at the same time high-quality preparation for the final exam ... It’s much easier to get a member of the board with the support of a commission member than to read the program in literature, mathematics, study the rules of the Russian language, practice physical experiments ... Excuse me, does loot decide everything here too?
And if it solves, today the USE helps to find not at all provincial talents in order to give them the opportunity to enter prestigious universities, but scampers and lazy people who are ready to solve all their problems for several large bills. Talents need to be helped, talentless people will break through themselves - today this is definitely not for the Russian version of the USE. Why? Yes, because a self-respecting graduate will not be exchanged for the use of MMS-tips, notes with the correct answers for the battery of the lobby, examination sheets filled with ready-made solutions, All this is a lot of ushly - counting to catch a fat fish in muddy water.
Yes, in the exam there is a benefit. There are quite a few graduates who, with the help of professional teachers, acquire the necessary knowledge and skills through their work, and then, based on the results of the Unified State Exam, they enter higher education institutions. But in addition to honest guys, they are attached to a no less number of outspoken mediocrity, who made their way into the "multi-bullet points" due to the thick wallets of their parents (patrons).
You say: what's the problem, wasn’t it like before? Yes it was, it was - no one argues. Bribe takers and gentlemen missed at all times. But if in this respect nothing has changed radically, but only aggravated, then why all this monkey labor?
The monkey is full of mouth:
Chump she will incur,
That way, that syk will embrace him,
Either whit or roll;
Sweat pours down the river from the poor thing;
And, finally, she, breathing heavily, breathes:
And he doesn’t hear any praise from anyone ...
The USE not only fails to fulfill its main function - a barrier to corruption, but also systematically breeds a system of total fraud. The administration system, if not completely failed, is relegated to those who are trying in every way to grab hold of the feeder. They say that there is nothing bad in the USE, the system is honed and will soon bring positive results. So it already brings ... It is enough to walk through social networks to complete tasks in all subjects from beginning to end, even if your knowledge tends to the field of absolute zero ... In the era of Internet development and the absence of real punishments for weak administration and powerful corruption activities, the Unified State Exam turns into profanation .
I would like to appeal to our officials in charge of education: good people, well, how many facts of fraud must be established during the unified state examination so that this system will be radically revised. Is it still not clear that the USE is a loophole for crooks of all stripes who hide behind the words about the need to reform education. Reforming what? What was one of the best on the planet, and what even our “sworn friends” confirmed ... Now we have reformed.
I would like to ask the president: Vladimir Vladimirovich, and maybe not to be afraid - to spit on this exam, and to return the time-tested system of assessing the knowledge and skills of graduates? ..
Officials from Minobra are silent, the president is silent ...
But if the Unified State Exam, which does not respond to the realities of life and to the social needs of the Unified State Examination, means that someone needs it ...
PS The plans of the Ministry of Education and Science with 2014, means not only the "development" of the USE, but also the introduction of a new position in Russian schools - a tutor. This "native Russian" term refers to a specialist who will deal with the so-called pedagogical support of schoolchildren. Now, it is tutors who, instead of class teachers or counselors, will “take on” students in the matter of their education. Who specifically in the Russian education system needs such changes, and why suddenly class leaders, judging by the reform, have ceased to cope with the sowing of rational, kind, eternal - it is not clear. One gets the impression that this renaming is from the “militia - police” series, which doesn’t carry a truly effective component, but it carries an important reformatory tick in documents with regular bureaucratic bonuses for rationalization in teaching and educating young people. Only after graduation from universities about 35 thousands of graduates in 2012, immediately took shape at the labor exchange. And a significant part of these 35 thousands joined the army of the unemployed.
