In Crimea, parents do not want to replace English with Chinese in schools
83% of schoolchildren’s parents oppose the exclusion of English from the school curriculum. The public is also wary of the compulsory study of Chinese: 64% are against. Parents of schoolchildren from Crimea took part in the survey of the SuperJob service for finding a highly paid job.
Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Sultan Khamzaev proposed to exclude English from the list of compulsory subjects at school. In his opinion, this will make it possible to get away from the pro-Western vector in the Russian education system. Only 17% of schoolchildren’s parents approve of the initiative, while 8 out of 10 oppose such a decision. In the comments, the respondents remind that English remains the language of international communication, and the methodology of its teaching has been worked out for years.— noted in the press service of the service.
Should Chinese be made compulsory? Society is cautious about this idea: 64% of respondents are against such an innovation. Among their arguments is the complexity of the Chinese language, the lack of confidence in the consistency of domestic teaching methods, and the lack of mass demand: «All engineering specialties still require knowledge of English.» Only 10% support the study of the Chinese language in the system of secondary education. From their point of view, Russia’s strategic partnership with China will certainly lead to demand for specialists who speak Chinese.
