Description: In post-perestroika Russia, curriculum reformers and parents criticize ZUNy -- an acronym for the triad of knowledge, skills, and habits underlying traditional Soviet education -- for valuing rote learning and teacher authority over cognitive and social development. Drawing largely on interviews, Webber (Russian and East European Studies, U. of Birmingham) assesses the aims and patterns of change in the current Russian school system and concludes that it is being reinvented despite societal obstacles. Includes a list of educational establishments for ages 6-17, the translated survey questionnaire, and extensive references.
