In Russia of 200 thousand superfluous teachers?

- in questions of definition of optimum number of teachers it is possible to lean both on Russian, and against world experience. In Europe on the average on one teacher it is necessary 13 - 15 pupils. At us 10 years ago was about the same parity. Now - 9 - 10 pupils on one teacher, - Andrey Fursenko in interview to the newspaper « has told; Sheets ». - Today in Russia about 13 million pupils - unfortunately, their number owing to demographic problems essentially will not grow in the near future. Growth will begin not earlier than 2015 - 2016 to leave on a parity at least ten years` prescription, 1 million teachers is necessary to us today. Now them about 1,2 million That is potential for reduction - 200 000 persons.

this citation has instantly scattered on the Internet and was very soon transformed to a conclusion: Minobrnauki begins total reduction of teachers (if to judge by calculations of the minister, in the street there should be every fifth teacher). A leah So it? A leah officials represent themselves a real situation? After all actually at many schools not an overabundance of teachers, and their catastrophic shortage.  

« has decided to find out that meant Fursenko. But it has appeared, as it and happens, the phrase taken out of context had a bit different sense.

anybody is not going vzashej to drive teachers from classes. And Minobrnauki has on it no right: for states of schools the local administration together with the director responds. Idea in other.

at schools every year becomes ever less pupils - a demographic hole. It is less than pupils - it is clear that there is less than work at teachers, - simply they have nobody to learn. As has explained « » The head of Department of the general education Minobrnauki Elena Nizienko, a ministry problem just in to losing qualified personnel, to find to liberated teachers business. Where? And is where. Children of preschool age for last five years became more almost on 1 million Becomes more kindergartens, various programmar schools, circles.

- if in the near future teachers from high school began to pass in preschool centres, it would be good for all education system, - explains Nizienko. - For teachers it not only possibility to get instead of the unemployment benefit worthy wages but also to be engaged in favourite business - to teach. The problem the next years - to save in an education system of good teachers, to provide retraining and employment of liberated teachers.  

neither Minobrnauki, nor regions, employers are not going to dismiss teachers. It is a question of measures which will help the teacher if for it there will be no business in school, not to appear simply in the street.
