Anti-corruption lessons planned for Russian schools, universities
MOSCOW, September 1 (RAPSI) – Members of the Russian Government’s Expert Council have suggested to implement anti-corruption lessons for schools and universities, RIA Novosti has reported.
The school curriculum may implement specialized anti-corruption lessons for 9th through 11th grade students in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Vladimir and Barnaul, as well as tips for parents on how to discuss corruption-related issues with their children in the 6th through11th grades, according to the press service of the Russian Open Government.
Open Government experts also suggest a specialized course to deal with the basics of anti-corruption policy for universities in the four mentioned cities. This course would be taught to BA students specializing in the humanities and technical subjects as well as in business schools.
In April 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an executive order approving a national anti-corruption plan for 2014-2015. The document focuses on secondary and specialized anti-corruption education. Universities implementing BA programs in state and municipal administration are required to stipulate special anti-corruption courses.
