At the same time in the environment of the spreading economic crisis there is a problem of retraining of a consid14,erable number of the unemployed evolving, 12,including the workers of different profes10,sions.

Education people - - RUSSIAN ECONOMY: TRENDS AND PERSPECTIVES sia the effect of this measure will be nut insignificant and the quality of the fulfilled programs will be rather low.

To a considerable extent this conclusion is accounted fro by the fact that the system of the primary vocational training could not meet the requirements of the employers concerning the qualification of the staff trained by it up to the mark. Besides, in the pre-crisis period the problem of the effective retraining of the unemployed was not solved in those regions of Russia, where its level was by far above the average Russian one.

According to the data of the Federal State Statistics Service the number of independent state and municipal secondary special educational institutions has reduced. At the same time the number of branches of the institutions of the secondary vocational training institutions increased by 25 in 2008 as compared with 2007 (by 5.9%) and was equal to 449. Over the same period of time the number of higher professional educational institutions went up by 26 (2.3%).

It should also been noted that the number of the state higher educational institutions increased by 2, whereas the number of non-governmental higher educational institutions increased by 24.

In 2008 the enrollment in state and municipal secondary vocational institutions reduced by 60.3 thousand of people as compared with 2007, that is 8.3%. According to the data of the Federal State Statistics Service, 190.4 thousand of students started their studies in the special secondary educational institutions on condition of fully-funded training, which made 28.4% of the total number of those enrolled (in 2007 238.1 thousand of people or 32.6%). Thus, the paid entrance to the institutions of secondary vocational training reduced by more than 20% in 2008. On the one hand it is connected with the demographic situation in the country: the number of the young people of the corresponding age decreases while the number of the budget-funded places sustains, which results in the decrease in the paid contingent. On the other hand a sharp acceleration of the said process (in 2008 the paid enrollment to the secondary special institutions decreased by only 6% in 2007 versus 2006) testifies, in our opinion, the fact that the redistribution of the contingent between the secondary and higher professional education is intensifying.

The system of the higher education remains the last level of the formal professional education, where the number of the students continues to increase (in primary and secondary professional education the number has been decreasing in recent years).

In 2008 the number of students in the Russian higher educational institutions reached 7.million of people. It should be noted that the number in the governmental sector increased by only 6.4 thousand of people (that is by 0.1%), whereas in non-governmental sector by 45.thousand of people (by 3.6%).

The total enrollment in the higher educational institutions in 2008 made 1641.7 thousand of people, having decreased by 39.9 thousand of people as compared with 2007. It should be noted that in 2008 the admission to the state and municipal institutions decreased by 21.thousand of people (by 1.5%). The reduction occurred at the expense of the students accepted for the internal training, where the decrease was equal to 47.7 thousand of people or 6.7%. The number of students accepted for the correspondence courses increased at the same time by 29.8 thousand of students or by 5.1%.

The admission for budget-funded places in state and municipal institutions of higher education has been reducing for the fifth year in the row. On the whole, from 2004 to 2008 the number of those accepted to budget-funded places reduced by 67.3 thousand of people or by 10.7% (table 1).

According to the latest data of the Federal State Statistics Service, in 2008 the admission to the state and municipal higher educational institutions reduced by 1.7% in 2008, and to nongovernmental institutions by 6.3%. At the same time among those accepted to the first year at higher educational institutions there will be 65.8% of those paying for their education.

Thus, as it has already been mentioned, in 2008 the number of those accepted for internal training reduced while the number of correspondent students went up simultaneously.

In 2008 566.0 thousand of people were accepted to state and municipal higher education institutions on the basis of the result of the Unified State Exam (USE), which is by 117.thousand of people or by 26.1% more than the corresponding admission in 200. At the same time it should be noted that 2008 was the last year for conduction of the USE experiment and starting with 2009 the Unified State Exam should become the norm. However, despite the increase in the number of those accepted to higher educational institutions basing on the USE results, only 41.5% of the total number of the admitted was admitted basing on its results.

As a result of 2008 Russia holds the second place by the number of students per 10 000 of people, the number being 525 people, the higher number being observed only in the USA.

However if one takes into account the students of the secondary vocational training institutions as well, Russia becomes the absolute leader with 695 students per 10 000 people.

In 2008 the expenditures of the federal budget for education went up by 20.9% as compared with 2007. At the same time the expenditures for higher professional education made RUR 263.2 billion in 2008, having increased by 22.9% versus 2007.

On March 16, 2009 the meeting of the Russian Public Council on the development of the education Education and Crisis took place, which had been the first meeting of the council over a long time. The consequence is that though by the end of 2008/2009 study year the system of education will exist in virtually the same regime, the signals of the economic crisis have already reached it.
