The article deals with the modern problems in teaching History. Principal problems are: determining the educational standard, creating schools with an emphasis on history, developing the Unified State Exam in history, writing textbooks, and improving the teaching methodology. What are the standards created for, and at whom is it oriented? What should the contents of the course in history be? What are the main purposes of the schools with an emphasis on history, which materials and textbooks are used in them, what optional courses are offered? Which should be first: the Unified State Exam or the specialized school, and what are the interconnections between them? Is it possible to write an ideal school textbook in History?
