Freedom of Choice: Preconditions of Contemporary Democracy
In the given paper the decisive role of legislation in democratic development of the society is reviewed. The legislative educational documents of the different countries are compared. The expression "freedom of education" is analyzed. The different approaches to its understanding are described. The author pays attention to the range of educational procedures (envisaged by the legislation), that put obstacles in the way of development of educational freedom. These are registration, license, attestation and accreditation. The violation of freedom in education is described on examples of totalitarian countries such as USSR and Nazi Germany. Educational legislation must stimulate the changes, prepare legal ground for modified and improved system of education, and implement structure for democratization support by means of education.
