According to the publication, at the beginning of the document Aranovsky discusses whether it is possible to trust the diploma of a Russian university, and notes that “professional education” is not able to “confidently guarantee the qualifications of diploma holders”.
Aranovsky claims that in the education system "there are so many dynamics that one cannot count on the stable quality of the educational product."
The judge, in a “dissenting opinion” assesses the implementation of the Bologna system. According to him, "countless resources" spent on educational reforms, "could be spent for the benefit of science and for a decent payment for teaching work."
He writes that "improvements in education last about thirty years, and their results are still controversial, so now that with so much spent and trust in diplomas, there is no reason to continue to rely on ministerial decisions, the initiative of the administration and the enthusiasm of activists."
Earlier it was reported that 39 higher education institutions from Russia were included in the ranking of the best universities in the world according to the British magazine Higher Education (THE).
