Russian President Vladimir Putin in his Address to the Federal Assembly proposed a return to the traditional study periods in Russian universities, from 4 to 6 years.
“I think it is very important to focus on education, on people in general, on human capital, in that today colleges and technical schools are a very important link in the education that our youth demand. put your material base in order, we need to apply programs and use those that will give the profession and the qualifications that are in demand in the economy, which is needed for the economy. That the best staff, the best mentors, as it has always been, work in these specialized secondary educational institutions,” Matvienko said on the “Russia 24” TV channel.
The Federation Council Spokesperson also drew attention to the accents in the Message that relate to higher education.
“It is very important in higher education – not to lose what is valuable for which the Soviet education system has always been famous, but still to go to a specialist. Now we are these shackles that have bound us for the past years, we just throw away easily get them out, and we’re going to train those staff, they generally don’t give higher education, but in-demand staff, so that our young people know that they are expected, are in-demand, and receive the education that will enable them to work professionally in a particular field that have chosen. Therefore, the emphasis on the specialty is very correct,” the politician highlighted.

We will now work proactively on legislation,” said the speaker of the upper house of parliament.
