  Russia - Education
Post-Soviet education reform also stressed teaching objectively, thus discarding all forms of the narrow, institutional views that had dominated the previous era and preparing young people to deal with all aspects of the society they would encounter by presenting a broader interpretation of the world.
In 1993 Russia was forced to close about 20,000 of its schools because of physical inadequacy, and an estimated one-third of the national school capacity was in need of large-scale repair.
Among Russia's educational reforms is a regulation authorizing school officials to expel students fourteen years of age or older who are failing their courses.

One of the most visible changes in the Russian system of higher education today, as well as in many other transitional or politically reforming countries, is the emergence of private educational institutions.
Second, the private sector has provided a crucial avenue of access to higher education for thousands of students whom public educational institutions could not accept because of the limits imposed by state-planned enrollment.
Having decided to follow a Western style of education - granting a bachelor's or master's degree--some private universities are in trouble now as to what such a degree means for their graduates in terms of future employment.
