School plays an important role in our life. Studying and finding out something new is a leading spiritual need of a human being. Thats why we spend a considerable part of our life in school. First we go to primary school, then to the secondary and afterwards to the higher institutes. So its quite natural that nowadays education is in the center of attention. The economic situation in our country improved greatly so the authorities finally started to think about the future. It is well-known that children are our future. Future prosperity of our country depends on their upbringing and education.
This year brought some positive changes to Russia, Moscow and Zelenograd. But there are some alarming tendencies as well. For example, the commercialization of Higher Educational Institutions is still increasing.
