St. Petersburg, March 29, 2023, 15:43 — REGNUM A pro-Western ideology is being imposed in Russian education, including courses in social science. This was stated on March 29 by the Head of the Council under the President of the Russian Federation for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC) Valery Fadeev. At the St. Petersburg International Educational Forum, he called for a review of the practice of teaching Russian residents and abandoning the clichés and clichés that form “certain worldview“.
“Today, social studies courses are largely pro-Western. This is no way to educate a citizen of Russia. These courses need to be “unstuck” from the Western tradition“, – said Fadeev.
He stated that “Western scientific positivism has long exhausted itself and is simply harmful“. But while in Russia, teaching social science, they are actually implanting Western ideology, the head of the HRC believes.
