On the pages of our "Philosophy of Education" journal there have been repeatedly outlined the ideas that the dramatic changes in the socio-economic, political, social and cultural life of modern Russian society are accompanied by reforming of the education system. There takes place a change of the major social- political goals, which is connected with Russia's transition to new social relations, which have objectively demanded a change of course in the educational policy .
It should be noted that in recent years, the implementation of long-term economic and social development began, new technologies began to be mastered, measures are being taken to overcome the consequences of the global financial crisis, the fight against corruption, etc., while the education system not only did not collapse, but also showed high adaptive capabilities.
At the same time, market relations continue to strengthen in the educational space, changing its status ("service sector"), which dictates the need for management structures to define an educational strategy taking into account all factors in the development of post-industrial, information, globalizing world, as well as socio-cultural characteristics and human potential of the country. In addition, it is necessary to identify the social order of the education system, to turn the spontaneous market of educational services into actively developing on a scientific basis.
These problems were discussed repeatedly at international conferences, symposia, scientific and methodological seminars, at the permanent scientific and methodological webinar "Forecasting the development of domestic education", etc., organized by The research Institute of philosophy of education. The materials of scientific events are partially published in the issues of our journal. Currently, we continue to acquaint you with the main ideas that aroused interest among the participants of scientific events.
Today, the geography of the authors of our journal has significantly expanded: from Vladivostok, Birobidzhan to St. Petersburg, Moscow. The authors of the articles are scientists near (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Ukraine, Abkhazia, etc.) and far (Macedonia, Greece, Brazil, Iran, USA, Czech Republic, India, etc.) abroad.
