Society’s Role in Developing and Managing Education
Society’s involvement in public administration is a key factor for improving the quality of the country’s socioeconomic development. Other countries have developed various forms of public participation in the management of school and higher education at all levels: national, regional, local, and individual institutions. Russia has also created a legal framework that enables citizens to take part in the management of education.
How widespread is the practice of the public administration of the educational sector today in Russia? What role do public councils under federal, regional, and local governments play? How do supervisory boards, boards of trustees, and governing boards influence the development of educational institutions and improve the quality of education? What Russian and foreign practices have already proven their effectiveness and can be widely used in Russian realities?
