National Action Strategy of the Russian Federation in the interests of children for 2012–2017

16.01.2014

(approved by Presidential Decree of June 1, 2012 N 761)  

I. Introduction  

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, children have the right to special care and assistance. The Constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees state support for the family, motherhood and childhood. By signing the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international instruments in the field of ensuring the rights of children, the Russian Federation expressed its commitment to participate in the efforts of the world community to create an environment that is comfortable and friendly for the lives of children.  

In the Russian Federation, the National Action Plan for Children was adopted in 1995 and is designed for the period up to 2000. Within the framework of the next stage of the socio-economic development of the country, the development and adoption of a new document - the National Action Strategy for Children for 2012-2017 (hereinafter - the National Strategy) is relevant.  

The main goal of the National Strategy is to identify the main directions and objectives of the state policy in the interests of children and key mechanisms for its implementation, based on generally accepted principles and norms of international law.  

In the past decade, ensuring a safe and secure childhood has become one of Russia's main national priorities. In the messages of the President of the Russian Federation to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, tasks were set for the development of modern and effective state policy in the field of childhood. The problems of childhood and the ways to solve them are reflected in the Concept of the long-term socio-economic development of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2020, the Concept of the demographic policy of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2025.  

The implementation of priority national projects "Health" and "Education", federal targeted programs. A number of important legislative acts have been adopted aimed at preventing the most serious threats to the implementation of the rights of children. New state and public institutions have been created: the position of the Plenipotentiary at the President of the Russian Federation on the rights of the child has been established, the institution of the ombudsman for the rights of the child has been established in a number of constituent entities of the Russian Federation, and the Fund has been established to support children in difficult situations. The amount of financing social expenditures from the federal budget and the budgets of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation has increased, new measures of social support for families with children have been taken. For the first time in Russia, a large-scale nationwide information campaign was conducted to counter child abuse, a single helpline number was put into practice.  

As a result of the measures taken, positive trends of increasing the birth rate and reducing child mortality, improving the socio-economic situation of families with children, increasing the availability of education and medical care for children, increasing the number of children in families left without parental care have been noted.  

However, the problems associated with the creation of a comfortable and friendly environment for children, remain acute and far from a final solution. The reduction in the number of children’s population continues, and a significant part of children of preschool age and students in general education institutions are found to have various diseases and functional deviations.  

According to the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation, the number of identified violations of children's rights is not reduced. In 2011, more than 93 thousand children were victims of crime. The number of disabled children, orphans and children left without parental care is declining at low rates. The problems of adolescent alcoholism, drug addiction and substance abuse are acute: almost a quarter of crimes are committed by juveniles intoxicated.  

The development of high technologies, the openness of the country to the world community have led to the vulnerability of children from illegal content in the information and telecommunications network "Internet" (hereinafter, the "Internet" network), exacerbated problems related to the sale of children, child pornography and prostitution. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, the number of sites containing materials with child pornography has increased by almost a third, and the number of Internet materials themselves - by 25 times. A significant number of suicide sites are available to teens at any time.  

According to Rosstat, in 2010 the proportion of low-income among children under the age of 16 years exceeded the average Russian level of poverty. In the most vulnerable situation are children aged one and a half to three years, children from large and single-parent families and children of unemployed parents.  

The scale and urgency of the existing problems in the sphere of childhood, the emerging new challenges, the interests of the future of the country and its security urgently demand that the state authorities of the Russian Federation, local governments, civil society

The prevalence of family distress, child abuse and all forms of violence against children.  

The low effectiveness of prevention work with dysfunctional families and children, the prevalence of the practice of deprivation of parental rights and social orphanhood.  

Inequality between the subjects of the Russian Federation regarding the volume and quality of available services for children and their families.  

Social exclusion of vulnerable categories of children (orphans and children left without parental care, children with disabilities and children in a socially dangerous position).  

The growth of new risks associated with the dissemination of information that is dangerous for children.  

The lack of effective mechanisms to ensure the participation of children in public life, in addressing issues that affect them directly.  

2. Key principles of the National Strategy  

Realization of the fundamental right of each child to live and grow up in a family. In the Russian Federation, conditions must be created to ensure the observance of the rights and legitimate interests of the child in the family, the timely detection of their violations and the organization of preventive care for the family and the child, the provision of targeted support to families in need of it with children in difficult life situations, and if necessary measures to arrange for children left without parental care to be brought up in families of citizens.  

Protecting the rights of each child. In the Russian Federation, a system should be established that ensures response to the violation of the rights of each child without any discrimination, including the diagnosis of the situation, planning and taking the necessary set of measures to ensure the observance of the rights of the child and the restoration of the rights violated; legal education; provision of rehabilitation assistance to every child who has been the victim of abuse or criminal abuse.  

Maximum realization of the potential of each child. In the Russian Federation, conditions must be created for the formation of a decent life perspective for each child, his education, upbringing and socialization, the maximum possible self-realization in socially positive activities.  

Saving the health of each child. In the Russian Federation, measures should be taken to develop a family and children’s need for a healthy lifestyle, universal early prevention of morbidity, introduction of health-saving technologies in all areas of a child’s life, and provision of qualified medical care in all situations.  

Technology assistance, focused on the development of domestic family resources, meeting the needs of the child and implemented with the support of the state. In the Russian Federation, it is necessary to introduce more widely effective technologies of social work, which require relying on their own activity of people, giving them the opportunity to participate in solving their problems along with specialists, searching for non-standard economic solutions.  

Special attention to vulnerable children. In the Russian Federation, in all cases, special and sufficient attention should be paid to children belonging to vulnerable categories. It is necessary to develop and introduce forms of work with such children, which allow overcoming their social exclusion and promoting rehabilitation and full integration into society.  

Ensuring professionalism and high qualifications when working with each child and his family. In the Russian Federation, the formation and implementation of a policy in the field of childhood should be based on the use of the latest achievements of science and modern technologies, including in the social sphere. It is necessary to provide conditions for high-quality training and regular professional development of personnel in all sectors, one way or another related to working with children and their families.  

Partnership in the name of the child. In the Russian Federation, the childhood policy should be based on social partnership technologies, social and professional expertise, implemented with the participation of the business community, by involving civil society organizations and international partners in solving urgent problems related to ensuring and protecting the rights and interests of children. It is necessary to take measures aimed at creating an open market of social services, creating a system of public control in the field of ensuring and protecting the rights of children.

The implementation of the National Strategy provides for the following main areas: family policy of child conservation; availability of high-quality education and training, cultural development and information security of children; child-friendly health care and a healthy lifestyle; equal opportunities for children in need of special care of the state; creating a system to protect and safeguard the rights and interests of children and child-friendly justice; children are participants in the implementation of the National Strategy.

III. Availability of quality education and training, cultural development and information security of children  

1. A brief analysis of the situation  

The main problem of the availability of pre-school education for all categories of children is the lack of places in pre-school educational institutions. In order to increase the availability of pre-school education for the population, it is necessary to develop all forms of pre-school education, such as a family kindergarten, an early help service, a library, children's play support centers and others, as well as the development of the non-state sector.  

The priority in this area is to improve the quality of pre-school education in order to ensure equal starting opportunities for teaching children in primary school. At the stage of preschool education, the organization of psychological and pedagogical support for the family and raising the competence of parents in matters of the upbringing and development of the child are very important.  

Ensuring the rights of citizens and state guarantees for obtaining accessible and high-quality free general education is one of the basic principles of state education policy. In order to implement the system tasks set in the framework of the national educational initiative "Our new school", the Government of the Russian Federation approved an action plan for the modernization of general education for 2011-2015. As part of this initiative, special attention is paid to ensuring the quality of general education. There will be a serious update of the school’s programs and methods, the elimination of the artificial differentiation of schools according to the quality of education. New federal state educational standards should ensure that each senior pupil has access to several training profiles that correspond to his inclinations and life plans.  

The All-Russian system of education quality assessment is based on the principles of coverage of all levels of general education by the procedures for assessing the quality of education, participation in building this system (in terms of general education) of education authorities of all levels (federal, regional and municipal) and educational institutions directly .  

Thus, the created all-Russian system for assessing the quality of education is designed to ensure the unity of requirements for graduates' preparedness, objectivity in assessing students ’achievements, continuity between different levels of general education, the ability to use quality assessment results to make the necessary management decisions.  

Continuing to improve the conduct of the unified state exam, monitoring of compliance with the established procedure for examinations, strengthened the quality of public awareness about the organization and the results of the examinations. First of all, this concerns the public observation system, which, since 2011, has been introduced on a legislative basis. Currently, the development of possible mechanisms for improving the existing models of a unified state exam through the development of information and communication technologies is under way. Thus, in 2012, it is planned to introduce an electronic testing system at the exam in computer science and information and communication technologies, and at the exam in a foreign language - an oral component, as stipulated by the federal component of the state educational standard. It is supposed to take into account the experience of testing similar forms of examinations in these subjects in the course of the experiment on the introduction of a unified state

At the same time, problems continue to grow, due to the unresolved nature of which the rights and interests of children in the education system are largely unrealized. These problems are:  

lack of places in pre-school educational institutions, low quality of pre-school education;  

differentiation in the access of certain categories of children to quality basic and additional education;  

lagging behind the modern needs of society, the quality of education as a holistic process of teaching and raising children, poor management of this process and poor control over the quality of educational services;  

the inconsistency of the modern system of ensuring the information security of children to new risks associated with the development of the "Internet" network and information technology, increasing illegal content.  

The low level of ethical, civil-patriotic, cultural and aesthetic development of various categories of children leads to inter-ethnic and inter-religious tensions, xenophobia, discriminatory behavior of children and adolescents, aggressiveness, harassment of their peers and other asocial manifestations among teenagers.
