Schools of the Future. Where, How and What Will We Teach Our Children?
Based on instructions from the Russian president, 1,300 new modern schools are set to open in Russia by 2024, which could radically change the state of educational infrastructure in the country and eliminate second shifts. The plan is to attract RUB 800 billion in private funds from Russian credit institutions for the RUB 400 billion that the government is investing in the programme. However, when implementing projects to build modern schools in the Far Eastern Federal District, some difficulties have arisen: most of the regions are subsidized, which has led to problems in co-funding the construction of educational institutions. The current standards and price estimates do not take into account the conditions and peculiarities of the Far East, which affects the quality of projects and the level of architectural solutions for schools, and diminishes the educational potential of the new facilities. A unified catalogue is needed, i.e., a register of solutions for educational institutions that is adapted for the Far Eastern Federal District and will optimize costs and design time. An increase in housing construction will exacerbate the need for modern social infrastructure and the search for a systematic solution by the government, investors, developers, and the parties involved to structure concession agreements in an effort to create new schools in the Far East.
