In textbooks on the history of Russia can introduce the concept of “pioneer hero”. The proposal was made by the Chairwoman of the Youth Parliament at the state Duma Maria Voropaeva, reports RT.
As stated in the appeal to the Minister of education Olga Vasilyeva, known to the older generation the young heroes of the great Patriotic war know only 5-7 percent of today’s students. According to the authors, this is due to the fact that in the historical and cultural standard for the Soviet Union, there is no concept of “pioneer hero”.
“This is the knowledge that is necessary for the formation of identity and patriotism, promote true heroes among the youth,” said the authors.
Earlier, the Minister of education Olga Vasilieva said about the need to break the existing system of preparation of pupils for Unified state exam (use) and stop trying to “coach” them for testing. In addition, next year will be testing a mandatory exam in English, and the future plans of the Ministry of education to introduce compulsory history exam.
