Russian and foreign education in comparison
At the step of life when students leave their schools they have to choose where to continue their education. The choice is usually hard to make because even if you know what faculty you wish to find and what profession you would like to study there is still a problem to find a university and the question is: where to look for it? A lot of variants are presented both in the native country and abroad. And many students today choose foreign universities instead of getting education in their motherland. So, why does it happen? Why do so many young people leave their country after ending school?
The first and perhaps the main reason is that the level of education in such countries like the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany and some other ones like Singapore. If we compare, for example, Moscow State University and University of Oxford we can see that the variety of subjects and professions taught in London is wider than in Moscow and the qualification of lecturers and teachers is higher. This is what makes students who look for the best education leave their homeland.
Another reason is the price if education in comparison with its level. For the same money paid in the state universities of St. Petersburg or Moscow you can get education, for example, in the USA or in Canada which is better in many ways than in Russia.
Many people look for friends and acquaintances from other countries and very few young people from abroad choose Russia as a country where to get education, so, the amount of foreign students in our country is much lower in comparison with more developed ones.
And another important reason is the level of life in the country where to study and live in the future. Some young people choose foreign universities because they want to leave their motherland and it is easier to find a job if you have already got education in the country you want to live in. By the time you leave the place where you have...
...RUSSIA - CULTURE - EDUCATION
1. Russian children begin school when they are 6 years old. Elementary school consists of the first 4 grades, middle school consists of 5 grades and high school is 2 grades. It is only required that children attend the first 9 grades. After that a child can go to work or do work/study. If a child wants to go to the University, however, he or she must complete all 11 grades. There are approximately 25-30 students in each class. All students learn at least one foreign language in school.
Russianeducation system has three levels: school (called "school's education"), college ("middle education" and University ("high education"). A University education is more prestigious and higher than a College/middle education.
Children either walk or take public transportation to get to school. The elementary, middle and high schools are located in 1 building, so all the children from the neighborhood go to the same place. School buses are only used by children who attend private schools. If parents want to send their children to a specialized school, they must arrange for the child's transportation to that school.
All grades begin at 8:30 in the morning and children attend school Monday through Friday. There are 4 terms in a school year. Between the terms are vacations. The biggest vacation is for 3 months during the...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
Science and Play
Play pedagogy is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. Research shows...
...government could now coin money, declare war, make treaties, raise armies, and regulate trade with foreign countries. The executive, legislative, and judicial branches were created. To define individual rights, the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution, were issued in.
The American Revolution resulted in a representative government. The Senate, House of Representatives, and the Office of the President were made up of elected officials, giving the people a way to influence change in government. However, a liberal provisional government took control of Russia after Nicholas II abdicated. Another body, the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies, wanted more radical change in Russia. Some members were socialists called Mensheviks, while another group of radical socialists were called the Bolsheviks. The socialists called for peace, while the provisional government continued to war. Lenin emerged as the leader of the Bolsheviks, and in 1917 he went to Russia calling for "peace, land and bread." Lenin was a Marxist and wanted to train the working class to become a revolutionary force. On November 7, 1917, the Bolsheviks overthrew the provisional government in what is called the October Revolution. In 1918, the Bolsheviks renamed themselves the Communist Party. After the war with the Whites, the Communists renamed the lands they ruled to the Soviet Union.
The Russian Revolution resulted in absolute governmental...
...1,Russian and American Systems of Higher Education are similar in their pursuit of knowledge as a goal but are quite different in their organization and operation.
Firstly, to enter an institution of higher education in Russia an applicant should write an application and pass entrance examinations. Sometimes there is the so-called “contest of school-living certificates’ at universities. To become a student in the USA one should have: application, high school record, recommendations from teachers, personal commentary and interview.
Secondly, the systems of higher education in these countries differ in academic calendar. Though in both countries academic year lasts for nine months, in Russia there are no summer classes. As for the number of subjects studied during one term, in Russia there are no less than nine and in America there are only four or five. Besides, in contrast to Russian Universities, American ones lack national administration, each of the fifty states controls and directs its own schools.
American students attend courses at various colleges. During the first two years they follow a basic programme. After the first two years every student majors in one subject and minors in another. In addition to these courses he can select other subjects according to his professional interest. Nevertheless the most striking difference between the two systems of education is the system of...
...Impact Of ForeignEducation
In a changing global scenario, Third World countries are accelerating efforts to achieve recognizable success in the field of education. Pakistan has also taken measures to this effect. These efforts, though laudable, are debated by some academics as non-sustainable and thus non-productive. Notwithstanding these objections, over 2,000 students have been able to avail scholarships advertised by the HigherEducation Commission (HEC). These scholarships in the field of science and technology are expected to bring expertise to the country and set it on the path of progress. The experience also aims to give individuals a global perspective, hence contributing towards the making of ‘global’ citizens. On the economic and employment front, it offers a great advantage to graduates of prestigious international universities in gaining employment within the country and abroad. In the job market, preference is given to fresh graduates!
This fact was highlighted when a respected teacher and faculty member of the Punjab University visited the student advising office at the US Consulate Lahore to inquire about Graduate Degree Programs in the US for his son. He explained that despite the fact that his son had a record of outstanding academic credentials, he lost out to foreign, especially US educated candidates, in the job market. Unfortunate though the situation may appear for the local...

A Comparison of Paulo Freire and William Brickman
This paper briefly compares two of the world distinguished educators; Paulo Freire and William Brickman. The paper introduces both educators and debate on their contributions to the field of education. Moreover, this paper clarifies the ambiguity of the resistance that each faced in advancing their research to the next successful phase, the similarities and differences between them and the factors that may have impacted their imminent success as well.
Freirer and William and Their Contributions
Paulo Freiere and his family were forced to move to the countryside of Recife Brazil in 1929, after an anguish reversal of fortune (Flanagan, 2005). Freirer witnessed at close proximity poverty and the effects that it had on education. Moreover, how it was used as a tool to simply retain the economically underprivileged, controlled, dominated and suppressed (Flanagan, 2005). This system of education taught by the oppressor, intentionally assured that the oppressed twisted with the mental grasp of having only one understanding and one reality. Further explaining, Freirer stated that “Students area passive learners and teachers are the sole owners of knowledge” (Flanagan 2005). Freirer often viewed the banking concept of education as a system through...

Plato’s goal of education for enlightenment differs from Huxley’s perverted use of education for indoctrination.
In Plato’s Republic, Plato believed the state was responsible for the education of its citizens for the purpose of their individual enlightenment. Huxley, in his work Brave New World takes this part of Plato’s utopian society and perverts it in order to indoctrinate the citizens of his state. I will attempt to argue that Huxley uses education by the state to indoctrinate its citizens and ultimately undermine Plato’s theory on education by the state for individual enlightenment. The ways in which Huxley uses education to indoctrinate the individual are diverse. Music or rather hypnopaedic sound was used to indoctrinate the citizens while they slept (Kindle, Huxley, loc 385). Eugenics but more precisely the Bokanovsky Process is used along side with Podsnap’s Technique to create the individual. These processes combined allowed the state to alter embryos and make people into whatever the state desired (Kindle, Huxley, loc 84).
The use of music to educate the youth was something Plato originally stated in his utopian society. He stresses that when people are young they are more susceptible to influence (Kindle, Plato, loc 8578). Huxley’s state does this as well and plays hypnopaedic sound (music) while...
...Social Class EducationComparison
Have you ever heard of people saying no matter where you come from as long as you put in the effort to succeed in your education? Well that saying isn’t completely accurate because not everyone in the world is born in the position or ready for higher learning. Certain people are born in a position where they are properly prepared and financially set to pursue their education. Youreducation is the key to your wealthy lifestyle. Kids all have their own type of opinion on how they feel about education. But the real question is why they have the tendencies to feel that way about education. My essay and research I did will explain why people from different social classes will experience different educational obstacle while growing up.
Children say why is education so important to me? The reason why education is so important because no education means no type of degree and this goes for the majority of the people in the world. They are exception to some people in the world for example like rappers, professional athletes, or an entrepreneur because those people were either born talented, or invented something everyone wanted. Take Steve jobs as one of these exception this guy is the owner of Apple Inc. This guy’s invention made him who he is today. However majority of the world aren’t one of those...
