§ 19                                                                                              Increase the crisis in education, science and culture

 

1. Education

After the change of party and state leadership Soviet Union in October 1964 the reform process in education, occurred in the times of Khrushchev, stopped for a while, but eventually reform Education was continued.

In particular, since 1966 began widespread introduction mandatory ten-year education And she introduced not only in school, aj in secondary special education and vocational training.

However, increased centralization management education. In 1969 was established Ministry of Education USSR which assumed the functions of a number of Ministry of Education USSR, the former significantly limited the independent existence of the latter.

A salient feature of 60-70's was politicization of the educational process. In addition, since 1968 was restored military training in universities and since 1972 it became compulsory in all secondary schools of the republic.

In 1984 Parliament approved the USSR "The main directions of reform of secondary and vocational schools, that konkretyzuvaly education policy of the state "under developed socialism." According to this document increased noticeably ideological school training, but continued to occupy important issue of labor education, students learning specific knowledge of natural, economic and social sciences.

Quantitative indicators of overall Education in Ukraine in 60-80-ies were generally positive. Yet felt that every year education level of secondary school graduates steadily declining. Especially low was the level of training of rural schools.

Meanwhile, severe economical problems requiring constant updating of the leading sectors of the economy, science, Education and Culture of highly trained specialists.

To somehow solve the complex problem, in the 60-80-ies was significantly strengthened material base of universities, built new academic buildings, dormitories, dining, sports complexes for students.

On the basis of Donetsk, Simferopol and Zaporozhye Pedagogical Institute universities were created. In addition, the republic was established new institutions. As a result, 60-80-ies twice increased the total number of students. According increased and the number of specialists educated in the USSR national economy: in 1964 their there were 2.3 million, then in 1985 7.3 million people.

But despite these very serious quantitative indicators, the problem of qualified personnel in Ukraine remained sharp enough.

A considerable number of places in universities Republic held Students from the socialist countries and countries that have evolved. Yes in 1971 only in universities and colleges Kharkov trained more than 2 thousand students from 22 countries.

On the other hand, challenge continued quality of specialists. She is still in general was low, especially in correspondence and evening offices. In the early 80-ies, because of the increased demands scientific and technological revolution, it became particularly evident the level of training specialists in the USSR as a whole and the USSR was inferior to world standards.

 

2. Development Science

Senior Research Scientist Centre of Ukraine in 60-80-ies Republican Academy of Sciences was headed by famous scientist B. Paton. AN USSR consisted of three sections: physical, technical and mathematical, chemical and biochemical technology and social sciences. They determined main directions of research scientists.

In academia steadily increased number researchers. While in the early 60's they numbered 3.6 thousand, in 1985 is 15,3 thousand people. During those same years the number of doctors and Ph.D. in the republic increased 5.5 times.

The achievements of domestic science in this period were significant. In particular, at this time was a unique melting installation "Hurricane" to study plasmas and controlled thermonuclear reactions.

In possession of Ukrainian scientists 1966 was the biggest in Europe linear accelerator electrons.

Theoretical development of mathematicians used to calculate orbits of artificial satellites.

National researchers have been opened mechanism of transmission of genetic information that was of great importance for the problems of heredity.

Cybernetics Institute, headed by academicians V. Glushkov, and subsequently В.Mikhalevich was leading in the USSR on a systems design computers.

Accelerating technological implementation promising results of basic research contributed scientific and technical complexes and engineering centers, created by the Academy of Sciences. The most powerful there were Electric Institute, the Institute of Cybernetics, Institute superhard materials.

Ukrainian scientists have for the first time in the world practice offered brand new vysokotryvkohoiron, beznikelevoyi corrosion-resistant steel et al. Through basic and applied scientific developments geologists in Ukraine of the capacity development of mineral resources.

To better research continually improved organizational principles connections between science and production.

Especially popular was the conclusion commercial contracts research institutions with production teams. This form of collaboration between scientists and producers bring significant benefits result, during the 1970-1985 biennium was introduced into production over 13 thousand scientific research scientists of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. It gave tangible economic effect.

However, the practical implementation of scientific development was difficult. This is because contemporary economic system was not focused on the implementation of advanced ideas and research technologies. They found its practical expression only after applying power administrative measures, orders and instructions "from above".

Strict planning usually pushed business executives in search of more light, extensive routes and methods which brought quick results, rather than resorting to the perspective of intensive production development.

As a result, much of the interesting and promising scientific developments and remained not implemented in practice or subsequently found its way by outside the Soviet Union.

The only exception here was only development for the military-industrial complex and global research. They had an unquestionable national importance for Soviet countries tried to maintain its status of "superpower".

Enough difficult was for 60 to 80 years and for humanities scholars. Instead of a cult Stalin others came Khrushchev and Brezhnev.

In favor of each academic forced to "do" science, that accommodating exalted one or another regime. Mandatory elements parts of research social scientists of that time were called "Class approach" and malicious and hostile criticism of socialism bourgeois-nationalist views and concepts.

However, despite total control governing bodies and ideological censorship, some Ukrainian scientists could publish valuable for its objectivity and fairness of the research.

Among them should be called work Michael Braychevsky, devoted origin of Rus, the emergence of Kyiv and other ancient cities. High ratings deserves the attention of his polemical work "Annexation or unification", in which deals with events of interest.

In it, in particular, was subjected reasoned criticism of the official interpretation of the Ukrainian-Russian agreement 1654 and attempt to objectively assess the work of managers Cossack Ukraine. This work was written during the Khrushchev "thaw" for "Ukrainian historical journal, but has appeared only in 1972, and then abroad.

Extremely valuable for development historical studies of domestic work were also О.Apanovych, in which truth told about the history of Ukrainian Cossacks.

In 1979, completed work on known historical and philosophical works "Letter to Russian and Ukrainian historians " Ю.Badzo, where the author investigated origin of three Slavic nations Ukrainian, Russian and Belarus. True work on the history of the Ukrainian people and its culture prepared at this time Є.Pronyuk, Dzyuba other national historians, philosophers and literary critics.

In addition, 60 to 80 years of research teams of social scientists created such multi-publication, as History Ukrainian SSR. "History of Ukrainian Art, History Ukrainian literature. " Dictionary of Ukrainian language " в This period saw the light "Ukrainian Soviet Encyclopedia. " "The Soviet Encyclopedia of History of Ukraine et al.

However, not all real issues events and phenomena found in objective coverage of these journals. That is why these fundamental Labour have not received a positive assessment of the scientific community, especially foreign.

Not all departments of the Academy of Sciences SSR worked effectively. Some were made of situational reasons, without good reason. It is clear that the "activities" such scientific centers did not work, but only rozporoshuvala scientific potential and led to wasteful public funds.

In a monopolization of science group scientists, administrators Moscow and Leningrad even minor displays of dissent and opposition research Among Ukrainian scientists immediately prydushuvalysya.

Many of them had been deprived opportunity to engage in scientific work в During ideological "cleansing" and political persecution 70 years.

 

3. Literature and Art

Ukrainian literature 60-80's was adequately represented by one of the great works of ideological inspirer of the movement "Sixties" Honchar ("Cathedral." Beach Love "," Black Gully, "" Your star and etc.)..
