by time news

Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to reduce the number of control and inspection work in schools, follows from the list of instructions given by the head of state following the meeting of the Presidium of the State Council, held on August 25.

“To work out the issue and to ensure a reduction in the number of control and verification works in general education organizations, taking into account the need to provide a methodologically sound knowledge control regime and the relevance of the tasks of monitoring the quality of education,” the instruction says. The corresponding report must be submitted to the President by July 1, 2022.

Also, until December 1 of this year, Rospotrebnadzor, the Ministry of Education and Rosobrnadzor were instructed to analyze the actual volume of educational and extracurricular workload of schoolchildren, including how much time it takes for students to complete their homework. These departments need to submit proposals for optimizing this time, as well as for realizing the opportunity for children to do their homework in educational institutions – in the framework of the “Full-time school” model or in extended-day groups. It is noted that all this is necessary to “preserve the health of students.”

Kuzminov also pointed out homework, which is initially perceived by teachers as a routine, and by schoolchildren as a creative act. According to him, due to the lack of feedback, students lose interest in this component of the educational process. To correct the situation, according to Kuzminov, artificial intelligence can help – a digital assistant to a teacher who will do lessons with children so that they eventually figure out the topic. He noted that it will take at least 10 years to create such an assistant.
