The Third Week of Education Law

On December 16, 2019, The III Week of Education Law – the traditional annual event of the Education Law Laboratory of the Institute of Education of the Higher School of Economics started.

The Third Week of Education Law

The first event of the week was an expert seminar "The quality control in education: the boundaries of the state regulation and the "regulatory guillotine".

The upcoming administrative reform in the field of education is not only to reduce the load on educational organizations but also to release space for working with the quality of education in the essence. For this, it is necessary to take into account the existing Russian experience and foreign practices. The discussion of this experience was the goal of an expert seminar, on which the following issues were also discussed:

  • What are the current problems in the field of education quality control in Russia and in the world?
  • How should quality control be carried out at the levels of school and vocational education?
  • Which role should the government and non-state procedures play in assessing the quality of education and quality management?

The seminar was attended by foreign and Russian specialists: Jan De Groof, academic supervisor of the Education Law Laboratory, professor at the College of Europe (Bruges, Belgium) and Tilburg University (Netherlands), president of the European Association of Educational Law and Politics (ELA), William Maxwell, educational consultant, former head of Education Scotland, E. A. Lenskaya, dean of the Department of Education Management, Moscow Higher School of Social and Economic Sciences, A.V. Grebtsova, head department of The State Control (Supervision) in the field of education of the Ministry of Education of the Moscow Region, as well as employees of the Institute of Education of the Higher School of Economics.

At the traditional "Tuesday" seminar of the Institute of Education "Actual Research and Development in the Field of Education" Professor Dirk Van Damme, head of the OECD Innovation and Measuring Progress Division delivered a presentation "What is the reason for the difference between research in the field of education and problems of educational systems".

In his report, the professor highlighted one of the most exciting topics - why research in the field of education does not always solve the problems that educational systems face around the world, as well as the main trends in educational research and the main risks and problems that educational systems face.

The following issues were raised throughout the report:

  • How does the quantity and quality of research in the field of education affect these changes (and their lack)?
  • What systemic risks exist in education at the moment?
  • What discrepancies exist between research in the field of education and problems of educational systems?
  • How can new studies of learning help improve support for educational systems?

The collective monograph represents the views of Russian and foreign researchers and experts in the field of education and the law on the problems of multilevel management of the education system. Scientists and practitioners talk about principles that should be followed in the process of organizing the educational system, social institutions that influence it, and consequences that a transfer of authority between levels of government has for the education sector. Russian authors consider the results of recent reforms in the field of redistribution of powers in the field of education, the impact of such redistribution on certain areas, as well as specific cases of the regional practice of exercising powers and cooperation. The monograph is equipped with analytical applications that graphically represent the distribution of powers in the field of education in Russia between different levels of public authority.
