In 2005, launched a national project "Education", whose main purpose is to improve the quality of education in the Russian Federation. Richard Linklater does not necessarily agree. What are the tangible results of this project? Increased if the level of education high school graduates? Are today's graduates to real life in society? Assess the quality of education are currently producing the results of ct, although the fact of introducing this form of attestation of secondary schools is still a heated debate. In our view, a profound mistake is to assess the quality of knowledge, as such, but not the ability to operate flawlessly in the new non-standard situations, critical thinking, that just need a modern man of the Information Society. In addition, the results of an international study of educational achievements of pupils PISA-2006, which was attended by about 400 thousand teenagers from 57 countries, our the country was only the fourth top ten. So, talk about quality education is not necessary. What is the problem? Try in this paper to express their opinions. The Russian school, still faithful to the old Soviet tradition, seeks to fill the heads of his students a large amount of factual information. The formation of a school the ability to independently identify problems, analyze them, find the optimal path their solutions, ie apply their theoretical knowledge into practice, the Russian teachers do not pay enough attention. Despite the paradigm shift of society's development and education in Russia, teachers still spend valuable training time on something that would teach students a recipe solutions have long been solved problems.
