Restructuring the general education network: The Chuvash experience

2007. No. 1. P. 203–208 [issue contents]
The article considers the results of a complex project on restructuring of general education networks in the Chuvash Republic. Special attention is given to the evaluation of the accessibility of quality education independent of place of residence. Analyzed are the models introduced in the republic, including basic central schools, social-cultural complexes, resource centers, etc. It is noted that school buses provide more than just transportation to school. Rural students are now taking a much more active part in regional competitions and olympiads. The school bus has enlarged the social horizon: it has made school trips to exhibitions, concerts, etc. possible. The article provides a comparison of academic achievements of urban and rural students based on the results of the Unified State Tests and presents data from opinion polls conducted by the Levada Center in the course of the restructuring project.
