Leo Tolstoy and Fedor Dostoevsky, leave the classroom! Automatic translate
MOSCOW. There was a proposal to sequester the school curriculum for literature.
The ideas of reforming the education system are not just in the air, but are persistently knocking at our doors. At first, each new initiative seems to be an informational stuffing, gradually taking on a policy outline. The dubious thesis that higher education is not compulsory for two-thirds of the population is supported by a constantly decreasing number of budget places and space prices at paid departments. A return to the school schedule of the science of celestial bodies will allow you to devote much less time to studying a second foreign language. The smoldering hope of abandoning the exam is shattered to tighten its rules. The color of pedagogy beats not over the introduction of progressive techniques that increase the motivation to acquire knowledge, but over the sophistication of the ways to test it.
From the latest news, Tolstoy’s unexpected “disgrace”. At first, Anna Karenina got into the “bad company” of works harmful to schoolchildren along with “Hamlet” and “Romeo and Juliet”. The tragic finale of classical works, according to critics, is capable of injuring fragile minds to a much greater extent than the dramas of real life. Voices are heard in favor of the seizure of Chekhov, Bulgakov, Bunin.
Now, in the bowels of the Russian Academy of Education, the question of the inexpediency of studying “War and Peace” and Dostoevsky’s novels is being intensively studied, and recommendations still unknown are being prepared. The argument is unexpected and gives rise to a sense of impending humanitarian catastrophe: the works of the above authors are too complex and deep for the current younger generation. The previous ones had a sufficient level of intelligence, the ability to understand, analyze great literature, and to reflect on the admissibility and morality of certain actions were not refused. Will Leo Nikolaevich, Fyodor Mikhailovich be able to defend, whether “our everything” and other names from the previously mandatory list will fall into their company, time will tell.
