  • Compiling study programmes: the art of seeking compromise

    18 December 2006


    RiTo No. 14, 2006

    Since the restoration of Estonian independence, the study programme for general education schools has been the subject of constant discussion, since the curriculum is one of the most important documents for self-determination of the state and the nation.

  • Democracy or a steamroller?

    Democracy is a form of political culture and communication. In order for it to work and be sustainable, it requires, like any other sophisticated system, fixed rules, a certain cultural environment, and - most importantly - a system for ensuring the observance of all these principles.

  • Balance Problems in Science Policy

    18 June 2001


    RiTo No. 3, 2001

    Knowledge-based and science-centred society is becoming another slogan enabling us to justify any decisions made in science policy. We should be aware and informed of all major scientific advances in the world, but at the same time Estonia is so small that we need to ask precise questions about what kind of science we should be developing with our limited resources. Unfortunately, posing this simple question and working out a strategy for the development of science was postponed since 1990 (when the Research and Development Council (RDC) was founded) until this year, when the project of the Estonian Research and Development Strategy reached the Riigikogu.
