In Russia, the issue of “corruption in universities” is increasingly being discussed. On November 28, during the meeting of the State Duma Speaker of Russia Sergey Naryshkin with graduate students, students and teachers of the Law Institute of BSU, President of Bashkiria Rustem Khamitov made a statement that it was necessary to “tutoring” out of the shadows as a type of business.
“In our republic about 30 thousand children enter the universities annually. Suppose that each of them paid about 30 thousand rubles. tutors. Then it turns out a turnover of 900 million rubles, which takes place only in Bashkiria. Suppose that this figure is overestimated by a factor of 2-3, it’s still a large cash flow, so tutoring should be taken out of the shadows, ”said Rustem Khamitov.
Akhat Mustafin, the rector of BSU, agreed with the president of the republic and added that, according to the university, “the tutorial flow amounts to almost 400 million rubles”.
However, children are not well taught in schools, so parents are forced to use the services of tutors. Tutoring, as a form of income, gives teachers the opportunity to receive additional funds for a decent existence.After all, it is known that teachers' salaries are low. There are resources on the Internet where you can find, for example, a vacancy of a tutor and train those who wish to do so on the world wide web.
This news has excited the parental public. “Tutors engaged in tutoring will not allow their incomes to decrease and the tax burden will be placed on the parents of the students,” said Guzel Akhmetova, who is on the parent committee of the Ufa school. “The parents of many Bashkir applicants and some other national republics are simply forced to hire tutors, because in some subjects schools are taught under an abbreviated program. For example, my son began to study computer science only in the fifth grade, while in other regions of Russia computer science is studied from the second grade. However, the Bashkir schoolchildren have the worst situation with Russian. ”
We add that the program on the Russian language in schools of Bashkortostan and Tatarstan is reduced by 37% compared with programs in other regions of the Russian Federation. This situation makes Bashkir and Tatar graduates less competitive.So parents are forced to use the services of tutors. Parents believe that less urgent and necessary subjects are imposed on students in schools.
The editors of Uznayvse.ru believe that a reduction in the teaching of important subjects in school education harms the development and literacy of children attending such schools.
