Education in Russia
« on: May 15, 2018, 11:32:03 PM »
This 'russophobe' has seen a few secondary schools in Russia and is constantly impressed by the standard of the IT skills the kids have.

A friend of mine conducts after school classes and his students attended a Computer Security competition for under 16's - with kids from all over Russia.

They came second out of 159 teams


When he came to Cheltenham - to a REALLY well known school - he was surprised to note how much more advanced his kids were in skill sets than the UK equiv.

We have to kids going to school here and I would say Russian schools far out class British ones today. Wife's boy is only 14 and already going to coding lessons in the evening twice a week..
I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!
