“You go to … zemstvo” was the title of a journalistic investigation published a few days ago.
This material, prepared according to a letter from a teacher with great experience, told about the unenviable share of rural teachers in Bashkortostan, in particular, in the Sterlibashevsky district. And this teacher explained in a simple and intelligible language why the profession of a teacher ceases to be prestigious, why schools experience a severe shortage of personnel. And why is the hard work of mentors-educators so devalued today?
The article noted that the head of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, most likely does not know the gravity of the situation.
Responses to posting…
And one of the readers suggested another hot topic: repairs in rural schools in the Republic of Bashkortostan are mostly of poor quality, but at a very high cost. It turns out that the repair is being done by “their” people with the full consent of the Minister of Education of Bashkortostan Aibulat Khazhin.
The correspondent of The Moscow Post in Bashkiria dealt with the murky situation.
Record holder – Sterlibashevsky district
According to the author of the letter to the Editor, in the past, in 2022, 63 schools were repaired in Bashkortostan under the federal program, including 4 schools in the Sterlibashevsky district at once.
In 2023, repairs are underway in 77 school buildings. And again, 4 schools are being repaired in the Sterlibashevsky district at once. And in all of Boshkortostan – our reader emphasizes this – there are only 63 municipalities.
“Why are more educational institutions being repaired in the Sterlibashevsky district compared to other districts?” – our informant asks himself a question. “But the quality of repairs in these schools is very low, because these repairs were made by … their own.”
It is interesting, as our reader writes, that in addition to federal funds, the republic also allocates its own money for equipment and improvement.
At the same time, according to the Minister of Education and Science of Bashkortostan Aibulat Khazhin, in 2022, 6.6 million rubles were to be allocated to the schools of the Sterlibashevsky district. And more than 60 million rubles for 4 schools – to ensure anti-terrorist security, improve the skills of teachers, improve the territory, etc.
But the very final equipment of these schools raises doubts in many respects.
So far, only furniture and projectors for classrooms have been bought for schools. Where is everything else? Or are they waiting for the promised 3 years?
And as it is clear from the letter to the Editor, the most unimportant repair was made in MBOU secondary school (in the municipal budgetary educational institution, secondary school) in the village of Tyater-Araslanovo.
But as Rustam Rakhmangulov, head of the district administration, said, “You don’t have enough children in schools, you still need to…”
But where can you get them? However, the renovation has been done. Money spent. And a lot.
In general, they repaired it so that you won’t look at it without tears.
As the author of the letter to the Editor writes further, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Belarus began to indulge the district with funding precisely with the arrival of Rustam Rakhmangulov as head of the Sterlibashevsky district administration.
But the condition for the receipt of money was the removal from the post of the head of the district education, Miniakhmet Karimov. He was simply offered to “voluntarily” leave and take the post of director in a secondary educational school in the village. Pervomaisky, because, as the author of the letter writes, “Miniakhmet Karimov did not get along with the Minister of Education of Bashkortostan, Aibulat Khazhin.”
As a result, he appointed “his” person with the same surname – Renat Karimov became him.
And from that moment on, money flowed into the Sterlibashevsky district through the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus in a “golden stream”.
But there was another surprise! Together with the “golden rain” from Ufa, the infamous Flyur Shagisultanov arrived in the Sierlibashevsky district to act as deputy head of the district administration. He has long been a member of the leadership offices of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus.
Prior to that, Flyur Shagisultanov worked as the director of GBOU RILI (State Budgetary Educational Institution – Republican Engineering Lyceum-Boarding School).
But he got caught taking a bribe. And he hid in the “quiet” Sterlibashevsky district. True, when everything calmed down, he tried to get out of the outback. And he even won the competition for the position of director of SBEI SKhTT (Sterlitamak Chemical Technology College).
But what is surprising?
The terry past of Mr. Flabur of the Ministries of Education does not bother at all!
But the anti-corruptionists of the republic, as our reader writes, did not miss his candidacy. And he became despondent. And he cannot establish himself for the fourth year in the position of deputy head of the district administration.
“They say that the wife of the new head of the education department, Renat Karimov, is Flyur Shagisultanov’s close relative. So everyone here is friendly, everyone is reliable,” the author of the letter sums up.
The behavior of the new head of the education department of the district, Renat Karimov, also indicates that “gray schemes” are being passed from the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus to the Sterlibashevsky district.
In 2021, after numerous appeals to various authorities by the former head of the education department, Miniakhmet Karimov, a school in the village of Pervomaiskaya, where he now works as a director, decided to repair the catering unit.
But the tender, as our reader writes, was unexpectedly won by someone else’s contractor, and not “his own”, which was so needed by Renat Karimov, Rustam Rakhmangulov and Minister Aibulat Khazhin.
And the head of the education department, Renat Karimov, began to put spokes in the wheels.
But when it was not possible to get rid of someone else’s contractor, Renat Karimov came from the other side.
He demanded that the director of the school, Miniakhmet Karimov, purchase equipment and furniture for the catering unit from a specific supplier, which had already been approved by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus.
“Here it becomes clear why the Sterlibashevsky district attracts so much money through the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Belarus,” the author of the letter sums up.
But the director of the school in the village of Pervomaisky Miniahmet Karimov did not comply with Renat Karimov’s demand.
“As a result, they began to take revenge on the school principal, not to include the school in the village of Pervomaisky, where almost 200 students study, in the coming years in the federal capital repair program.
On the other hand, schools with 50-60 and even 20-30 students are willingly repaired … “
The author of the letter to the editorial office also writes that in the Sterlibashevsky district, apparently, at the request of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus, schools and kindergartens are being closed.
“The district administration should be the protector of its district. But since the current head came from the Gafury district, he managed to disgrace himself there, he doesn’t care,” we read the next paragraph in our reader’s letter.
And the Ministry of Education is interested in reducing the number of institutions, since the employee’s salary comes from Ufa. And kindergartens in the villages of Aytugan, Tabuldy, Uch-Asan, Upper Gulyum have already been closed in the district, schools in the villages of Yangurcha and Aydarali are being “strangled”. Kindergarten teachers are forced every year to take summer vacations at their own expense. Then the annual wage fund in Bashkortostan is divided only into the months worked. And the average values are higher, which is reported to Moscow in order to report on the implementation of V. Putin’s May decrees.
Therefore, in Bashkortostan they do it slowly and carefully …
Here is an interesting letter received by The Moscow Post.
It remains to be added that the public in the Republic of Bashkortostan has already raised the issue of the resignation of the excellent student of education of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Minister Aibulat Khazhin … This was reported by Pravda UrFO. But Mr. Khazhin remained seated in his chair. But a simple teacher from the outback brought him to clean water.
