Modernization of educational policy in the context of modern civilization processes

Keywords: education, modernization, civilization processes, linear paradigm, liberalization, decentralization, democratization


The article is devoted to the study of the modernization of educational policy in the context of modern civilization processes. The author considers the main features of the educational policy modernization process in the article. Based on the publications and studies of domestic and foreign scientists, the following features were identified: firstly, there is a high level of knowledge pragmatization. An important criterion for the quality and effectiveness of knowledge acquired in education is the ability to sell this knowledge. Secondly, the growing dependence of education on a wide range of socio-political and economic institutions, recalls the phenomenon of "enslavement" of the university by the market, and, in turn, entails the intervention of politicians and businessmen in science and education. Thirdly, the vast majority of researchers note the civilizational and cultural monopolies of Western countries, primarily the United States.

The article finds that decentralization, deconcentration, democratization and liberalization imply the proliferation of educational policy actors. Education policy should refrain from monosubjectivity and become polysubjective. To do this, it must be based not only on state, but also on public mechanisms for regulating activities, create and maintain a favorable environment for the existence and functioning of alternatives, which is a necessary condition for free educational interaction and understanding of education as a practice of freedom.

This study is the first systematic analysis of the phenomenon of educational policy in the modern civilization process, which is based on the basic principles of decentralization and liberalization of education at all levels, the formation of nonlinear thinking of teachers, improving the efficiency of education, improving education. The use of the obtained results can be further used in the development and formation of state educational policy in Ukraine. Because, the principles of effective Ukrainian educational policy of the future are offered.
