Abstract: In the modern world humans often experience a strong need to feel safe and secure. A man needs to feel secure about his tomorrow as well as to be safe both physically and psychologically. This is what makes psychology so important today. Psychological health is an important component of economic and social resources of a nation. Noteworthy that psychological health is also one of the guarantees of public peace, social unity, high performance and productivity of labour, good living standards and stability of a man and society. The present article describes the results of the research that was carried out at a general education school. The purpose of the research was to evaluate the degree of psychological safety of the educational environment. The author of the article makes a hypothesis that the difference in perception of the level of the educational environment safety depends on the role of each actor of the educational environment. Moreover, the author of the article also makes an assumption that the more active actors (teachers) think of the safety at their school higher than parents while students think of it even higher due to their young age. Statistical analysis of results of the opinion survey has shown evident differences in perception of the educational environment from the point of view of different groups of respondents. Primary school students have demonstrated less satisfaction with the main characteristics of school compared to senior school students. The other peculiarity of the educational environment is that both teachers and students evaluate psychological safety of schools higher than the parents. Generally speaking, based on the results of the research the author of the article recommends to create the atmosphere of a better trust between school administration, teachers and parents as well as to pay more attention to stimulating interest towards teaching among primary school students.

Novikov S.G. - Up-Bringing of the Subject of Modernization in Russia: Review of the Modern Problem from the Point of View of Experience of the 1920s - 1930s pp. 54-73

DOI:
10.7256/2306-4188.2013.4.10105

Abstract: The author of the article outlines important aspects of the Soviet experience in formation of a subject of forced modernization. The author pays attention to the following facts. Firstly, the Soviet educational megaproject was developed as a part of the global social project and therefore based on the researchers' clear vision of Russia's future. Secondly, up-bringing was not limited to only educational and cultural institutions but spread within the entire society and involved all spheres of social life. Thirdly, the authors of the project used the method of 'prognosis based on stadards', in other words, the method of planning up-bringing and educational activities from the future to the past , i.e. from the ideal target to the real measures to be undertaken. Fourthly, the younger generation of those times was offered the ideal of the young man fighting for the 'kingdom of Truth' but not the ideal of a young man as a consumer of goods. Fifthly, the researchers did not deny the traditional ideals of Russian culture but tried to adjust the Western values to the socio-cultural environment of Russia.
