FNE summarizes the outcomes of the project “Development of community education in Russia”
22.09.2015
The projects “Community schools in Russia” and “Community universities” successfully implemented by the New Eurasia Foundation for Support of Social Development since 2005 have made it possible to consolidate available resources and use them to support social development of local communities by engaging secondary school and university students in the process of implementation of socially meaningful research and education projects.

For example, in 2013 – 2015, the New Eurasia Foundation continued implementing various activities within the framework of the projects “Community schools in Russia” and “Community universities” that had been integrated into a new project entitled “Synergy”. All three project implementation foci were made part of a large-scale initiative, “Development of community education in Russia”. The outcomes of this initiative were summarized in August 2015.

PRIMARY PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION OUTCOMES

NETWORKING EFFECTS OF “COMMUNITY SCHOOLS IN RUSSIA” AND “SYNERGY”:
  • The participants of the “Community schools” and “Synergy” projects identified and agreed upon a number of mutually relevant thematic activity areas and objectives of social partnership in the regions including housing education, education of consumers of utility services, and development of neighbourly collaboration.
  • Local collaboration networks involving the project participants represented by secondary schools and institutions of higher learning were put together.
  • Conditions were created for the purpose of integrating certain segments of these networks with the network of community schools via ongoing support, promotion and development of housing education.
PRIMARY OUTCOMES OF THE “COMMUNITY SCHOOLS IN RUSSIA” PROJECT COMPONENT
  • The rigorous work implemented by the Qualifications Improvement Institute for Education Specialists of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria with the view to support ongoing development of the Russian community schools network made it possible to engage in the project a number of secondary schools from Rostov-on-Don and initiate the development of a community schools network in the Rostov region.
  • The qualifications improvement institutes for education specialists from the cities of Irkutsk, Chita, Ulan-Ude (Republic of Buryatia), Blagoveschensk (Amur region), and the settlement of Aginskoye (Transbaikal region) executed multilateral cooperation agreements on development of community education.
  • The Qualifications Improvement Institute for Education Specialists of the Tambov region confirmed its leadership status in the development of a community schools network in the Central Federal District, as well as its leadership in the provision of tutorship to other RF regions interested in supporting the development of the community schools movement.
  • The outcomes of the previously implemented projects, as well as the current project were integrated into the system of general education by creating internship opportunities at existing community schools, introducing a system of activities designed to improve professional qualifications of pedagogues from the participating regions, as well as a system of panel discussions and presentation-type events and activities.
PRIMARY OUTCOMES OF THE “SYNERGY” PROJECT COMPONENT
  • The main achievement of this project component has to do with the identification and approval of the project’s substantive line of work for the next few years that entails further support of housing education, education of consumers of utility services, and development of neighbourly collaboration.
  • The local development laboratories established and operated by community school teams in the Arkhangelsk region (six teams), Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria (six teams) and Tambov region (10 teams) designed 22 socially meaningful projects addressing a variety of housing issues. The school projects will be implemented in 2015 – 2016.
  • Representatives of education administration bodies and administrators of institutions of learning plan to introduce “housing lessons” in their education activities in the Arkhangelsk and Tambov region, as well as in the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria.
PRIMARY OUTCOMES OF THE “COMMUNITY UNIVERSITIES” PROJECT COMPONENT
  • The practices and techniques that have proven to be most popular among institutions of higher learning include the following: organizing collaboration with employers (Career Forum – Novokuznetsk subsidiary of the Kemerovo State University), organizing and holding a competition of social projects designed by students (Competition of Student Projects – ITMO), organizing student bodies of self-governance in the interests of development of territorial infrastructures (student territorial self-governance – Kostroma State Agricultural Academy).
  • The institutions of higher learning that took part in the “Community universities” project have been able to establish themselves as the carriers of practices and techniques characteristic of a socially oriented institution of higher learning and implemented in one of the substantive activity areas. For example, the Kostroma State Agricultural Academy has organized territorial student self-governance at its dormitories, while the Novokuznetsk subsidiary of the Kemerovo State University has organized collaboration with employers that enables students to engage in preparation and implementation of social projects. The Perm State University has enabled its young researchers to engage in activities designed for the benefit of the city and taught them how to identify and engage with potential partners. Finally, the Northern (Arctic) Federal University has organized collaboration between secondary school and university students with the view to improve housing literacy and introduce housing lessons in secondary schools.
