School - not the place for discussions? What teach at social science lessons in Russia to

To make of the school student of the competent citizen and the patriot - such is the official purpose of classes in social science. As it looks in practice, Ilya Kosygin - on the example of Vladimir understood.

"Was not any practice, only one theory. The only task of the teacher - to enclose in the child's head what is in the textbook". Ivan Tumanov graduated from the 32nd school of the city of Vladimira where he for many years profoundly studied social science - he was always interested in social sciences. Now Ivan studies on the second year of the Vladimir legal institute.

However many schoolmates of Ivan went on this course not behind knowledge. "At us most of children went to hand over social science just because it was necessary to hand over something", - future lawyer says, meaning SFE examinations in the 9th class and the USE in the 11th.

"The task was set for us: at the exit there has to be a competent citizen and the patriot", - Evgeny Dyomin says. It since 1996 works as the teacher of history and social science at the 29th school of Vladimir.

"Children, in particular, have to understand the mechanism of work of the government, the regional authorities, local governments, - the teacher tells. - We speak about political system, we study typology of political regimes, we say about how political process in modern democratic society is carried out, - the teacher explains. - The Constitution is rather in detail studied".

as an example of the democratic state in the textbook is called also the Russian Federation.

Much depends on the teacher
