If education is not reformed as soon as possible in order to return the love of technical specialties to schoolchildren, no technological sovereignty of the country should be expected, experts are sure.

For three decades Russian society was explained that physicist or mathematician they will not be able to be successful, and the tracing paper from Western school education introduced in the Russian Federation continues to kill the desire in children to engage in the exact sciences.

This state of affairs has already led to the fact that teachers of the Mechanics and Mathematics Department of Moscow State University are forced to explain to freshmen the school curriculum of mathematics and physics, otherwise studying the university course is impossible, said the academician Robert Nigmatulin.

“In 5-10 years, when he leaves the older generation physicists and mathematicians, talking about some kind of technology would be as indecent as sneezing at the reception of the English king, ”argumenti.ru quotes him as saying.

The author of the material cites statistics that show that the number of those wishing to take the exam in physics has decreased by almost a third over the past two years.
