71 years ago, they introduced tuition fee in senior school and institutes of higher education of the Soviet Union.
Yep, Stalin was a real Communist, huh? He dismantled Communism and this is just but one example. Communism in name, Red fascism in practice.
@last picture – is it intentional to mix Khrushchev in text with Brezhnev on picture?
Yet one more way to control and enslave the masses. All to often revolution just leads to trading one oppressor for another and hopes are dashed.
Agreed. The Arab Spring, OWS, now the events in Russia… be careful what you wish for. You trade Nicholas for Vladimir and end up with Iosef.
the $10 for other cities…? Could you give more information on that? My wife was educated during the soviet era and was trained and worked as a teacher there, well after the ‘wall’ fell. She never knew of tuition fees. Her mother, also recognised officially as ‘Teacher of the Russian Federation’ is also unaware of these ‘fees’. Curious.
Maybe it’s just another one of ER’s ridiculous translations. Education was free.
Long Live Comrade Stalin！Long live Chairman Mao!
The source from which this page was translated says that state limits on people’s education ended in 1966, not 1996.
In other words, long live democide? Whatever…
what’s democide?I want to know.
That means Stalin was an asshole, just like Chairman Mao.
there was no fees soviet union provided their people with free high qulity education all this information is a lie, my grandmother studied to become a doctor during 1950 and didnt have to pay a ruble
When you don’t pay for work, you must provide a free education at least. I grown in soviet union and now I’m very happy that this nightmare don’t exists anymore. Now I’m free and highly paid specialist. This would be impossible in soviet regime.
I am very happy for you. But you must realize that although you felt that you were underpaid there were many people who enjoyed their life and money they made. It was a different life but also happier one for many people. Dont hate.
On the last picture not Khrushcev. It’s a Leonid Ilyitch Brezhnev.
