This information was presented by the Russian Minister of education and science Andrei Fursenko participating in the All-Russia meeting of the heads of regional institutions for additional pedagogical education in St Petersburg.

We are not speaking about universal standards in the whole sphere of education. We are trying to reach mutual understanding, - he stressed.

Andrei Fursenko explained that there is a waste number of educational systems in the world.
Even the professions having the same name have sometimes different contents, - he said. Thats why it is very important for us to decide how to compare levels of education in different countries, how to provide confidence to the education in this or that country.

The participants will also discuss the issues of improving education quality and systems of education for migrants in various countries. These issues will be discussed during the G8 summit.
