Subject. The article focuses on the self-motion of the Russian educational system.
Objectives. The study determines directions of the self-evolution of the Russian educational system and shows the outcome.
Methods. The study is based on the systems approach and statistical, neural network and cluster analysis.
Results. I indicate what impedes the evolution and development of the Russian educational system. As a result of the neural network analysis of growth rates of the self-evolution of the Russian educational system and World Bank data, I figured out the hierarchy of material indicators of its structure. The hierarchy of the material indicators is declarative of the feminization of the Russian educational system in terms of its self-evolution, and the prevalence of women in the social reality. As a result of the cluster analysis of growth rates in the self-evolution of the Russian educational system, I revealed the cause of the feminization. Having analyzed growth rates of the self-evolution of the Russian educational system and referring to data of UNESCO Institute of Statistics, I completed a view of the future development of the Russian educational system. The self-evolution of the Russian educational system was found to have negative effects, such as a considerably slowed down growth in the number of younger schoolchildren and pre-school children, significantly lagging growth rates of governmental spending on education out of total governmental expenditures.
Conclusions and Relevance. As the education system gets more and more important in the emerging world order, it is strategic for the national security. We witness the apparent feminization of the self-evolution of the Russian educational system, which changes principles of social development, paving the way to the predominance of women in the social reality. As the principles of the Russian society development change due to the feminization of the self-evolution of the Russian educational system, the uncertainty of its future existence grows even greater. The findings contribute to the required level of competence of governmental authorities to make administrative decisions that may save the Russian educational system.
