Russia looks to attract EU students

http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/sites/all/themes/chemistryworld/images/rsc_logo_elearn.jpgBy . The Russian government is planning to up its quota for foreign students studying on state funded places at its universities by 50%. The new quota will be set at 15,000 overseas students. Gulnara Krasnova, deputy president of Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, one of Russia’s most prestigious universities, says that increasing the quota is part of ambitious state plans to attract foreign students by creating the right conditions to both study, and later work, in the country. According to Izvestia, one of Russia’s leading business papers, there are currently more than 250,000 foreign students from 150 countries studying in Russian universities. The Russian education ministry wants the number of foreign students to make up 6% of the student population by 2015, growing to 10% in 2018. Krasnova said that particular attention will be paid to European students as the Russian labour market is currently more promising for them than the EU, where unemployment is steadily growing. Russian unemployment rate is only 5.2%, compared with 5.4% in Germany, 7.8% in the UK, 11% in France and 12% in Italy. Read more...

The plight of Latin America's teachers

http://media.trb.com/media/thumbnails/storylink/2011-01/58584855-04104021.jpgIt's no wonder that protesters in Brazil are holding signs reading "more education, less soccer," or that there are constant teacher strikes in Argentina, Chile, Venezuela and Mexico - Latin American schoolteachers are among the most miserably paid in the world.
Last week, as protesters in Brazil complained about their country's huge expenditures for hosting the 2014 World Cup soccer tournament and held signs with slogans such as "Japan: take our soccer, give us your education," a new study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development showed that teachers in Latin America earn less, work longer hours and have less time to prepare their classes than their counterparts in other regions.
The report, titled "Education at a Glance 2013," also shows that Finland and South Korea, which consistently rank at the top of international student achievement tests, pay their teachers almost twice as much as Latin American countries. Read more...

8 College Degrees with the Worst Return on Investment

http://www.salary.com/Image/300/300/Media/Default/graphics/badroi_intro.jpgBy . These Careers Might Make You Happy, But Fail the Tuition ROI Test.
College: Is it Worth It?
What's more expensive than going to college? Until recently, the answer was easy: not going to college. Numerous studies over the years have shown that individuals with college degrees significantly out-earn those with high school degrees by $1 million or more over the course of a lifetime. But as the cost of education increases faster than inflation and the economy remains relatively weak, people are beginning to question how they spend their education dollars. As student loans hit the $1 trillion mark and more and more graduates are faced with years of paying staggering monthly payments, many are starting to ask themselves, "Is it worth it?" Read more...

Young Afghans Flock to Higher Education, but Jobs Remain Scarce

http://s0.2mdn.net/viewad/1447902/3-97x70_cm_hdr_subscribe.png. By the time the gates opened at 10 a.m., the crowd had grown almost unmanageable. As if at a rock concert, young men and women thronged Kabul’s historic Babur Garden, jostling their way to the front. But this was no music festival. It was a job fair, and the headline acts the crowd had come to see were representatives of dozens of companies brought together by the organizers, local recruitment firm Capital Jobs, with funding from the U.S. government. Filling the support slots were consultants, offering training in interview skills or tips on writing résumés. Most of the crowd got to see neither, but simply reached over the heads of those in front of them to drop their résumés into a large pile, hoping that somebody would eventually see them.
