Information Bulletin "Professional practices of university facultyand strategies of students by quality and types of higher education institutions", 2018,  No.1 (121)

Authors:  V.Rudakov, Ya. Roshchina

According to outcomes of the survey, in recent years the secondary employment of the faculty has significantly decreased, the proportion of faculty who are going to leave the academic profession has decreased significantly, the degree of teachers’ involvement in research activities and their publication activity has increased. Nevertheless, significantly higher corresponding indicators are noted among faculty of research universities. If the funding of programmes aimed at increasing the competitiveness of Russian research universities and supporting research universities is continued, their further growth may be predicted. However, in 2014-2016 the real income of faculty decreased. Because of ongoing economic crisis, this trend may persist, which may lead to an increase in additional employment. This situation creates risks for the preservation and multiplication of the achieved results. It was also revealed that the scales of the implementation and use of massive open online courses in the educational process is moderate, although they differ depending on the quality of higher education institutions. Teachers are involved in training at massive open online courses to a significantly greater extent than students. Teachers and students on the whole neutrally react to the replacement of general disciplines with massive open online courses, but they are negative about the replacement of special professional disciplines with them. For the period of 2006-2015 the educational mobility of students has increased considerably, and there has also been a significant increase in the demand for master's programs.  The motivation of the students’ labour supply shifted to the financial motives, their salary expectations and earnings at work which they combine with studies decreased. One can expect the continuation of this trend with further deterioration of the social and economic situation in Russia, as well as an increase in the proportion of students combining study and work.

Information Bulletin Participation of parents in school education: choices, opportunities, involvement 2017, № 19 (118)


Authors: M. Goshin, S. Kosaretskiy

  The information bulletin ‘Participation of parents in school education: choices, opportunities, involvement’ continues a series of publications of the National Research University Higher School of Economics on the results of monitoring of education markets and organizations. The bulletin presents the analysis of data of schoolchildren’s parents survey collected in the framework of the 14th  wave of the monitoring in 2016-2017. The accessibility of education (possibility of choosing a school, selection upon admission and transition from one education level to another one, coverage by additional education) is analyzed on the basis of assessments by parents of schoolchildren studying at schools of different types and organizational and legal forms. Involvement is seen as participation of parents in a child's school life, exerting the influence on the accessibility of services and educational outcomes. The conclusion is drawn that the barriers to accessibility of basic and supplementary programs are not significant and have been lowering. However the accessibility of high-level programs and quality of supplementary educational programs for children differ depending upon the socio-economic status of the families and the territory of residence. The outcomes of the research show that parents began to approach the choice of the school more consciously, but most parents are not sufficiently involved in school life. Parents’ strategies in respect of choosing a school and participating in school life vary depending upon the socio-economic and cultural level of the family, type of school and school location, educational achievements of schoolchildren.

Author: S.Roshchin, V.Rudakov

The transformation from the elite to mass higher education in Russia which took place in the 2000s is a serious challenge for the whole system of professional education. The “mass” character of higher education leads to such problems as an overall decrease of education “quality”, lowering of the value of higher education from the viewpoint of employers as a “signal” of employee’s high productivity, structural disproportions on the labor market related with an excessive supply of employees having formally a high qualification level, inefficiency in budget spending. Those changes exert a substantial influence on the behavior of various economic agents: students of higher education institutions and their parents, employers, heads of higher education institutions, representatives of the state authorities engaged in managing the system of higher education in Russia.

Nevertheless the heads of approximately half of the surveyed companies intend to upgrade technologies and equipment within the next year.
