And from "Zastepinsky" do not tear. Moreover, there are plenty of applicants from other districts and farms. For an apartment with a warm bathroom are ready to give all the best on the farm and in the field, to observe the strictest labor discipline and not even contradict the authorities. Just choose from this lineup those who have a better track record. But already their jobs are not enough. Vasily Semenovich frankly spoke about this to the children on the first line of this school year:
- All those wishing to accept can not. But still you learn better. In other places you will be greeted "according to the clothes," according to how you manage to show yourself ...
And in order for people in good “clothes” to leave the school, prepared for meeting with real life, representing where, in what area they can most effectively apply their strength and skills, the state farm does a lot.
Not every director of an enterprise (even if it sponsors a school) is invited to attend meetings of pedagogical councils. Popkov is there regularly. He has on his desk in his office a schedule of classes conducted by state farm specialists at school. From time to time he meets with each of them on purpose and therefore knows well how things are with the professional training of children.
This has been the case since the time when the director of the school was Georgy Petrovich Belonosov, today working in the regional department of public education. Very soon, apart from mutual sympathy, they also identified common interests, including an interest in V. A. Sukhomlinsky's pedagogical ideas. Together they created a class of mechanization with a warm garage and the very same module-module of natural science subjects. Together they built a labor camp for the apprenticeship production brigade.
At the beginning, who replaced Belotsosov as director A. I. Vasilyeva, it was a curiosity of the financial relations that developed between the school and the economy. She recalls how she first came to Popkova, and he asked straightforwardly: “How much do you need?” Remembering her work in different conditions and not counting on generosity, she said: “Thousand!” And then he said that the state farm considers its school shop number one and that, like all other heads of departments, it laid the checkbook. And he was stunned: "I think ten thousand should be enough for you ..."
Frankly speaking, Alla Ivanovna was strange at first, when nails, boards, paint were needed, to receive all this without delay at the state farm warehouse, paying with a check. Now, of course, used to.
Naturally, it is not only by these thousands that the aid of the school economy is measured. And it’s not Vasilyeva with a checkbook who pays, let's say, the construction team that changed floors in the gym in the summer, but state farm accounting. Zastepinsky school’s own “native” money is barely enough for redecoration, for the organization of work practices, the acquisition of the most necessary and rather primitive inventory and office supplies, for a general education fund. In fact, it seems that we simply do not know how much school is required for a full-blooded existence. In public education has developed its own kind of special economy, which is not complete without constant support in the form of "alimony", levied from the basic enterprises or chefs. Because not every boss is rich, in the material condition of schools you see unintelligible inequality in the mind: someone is obviously beggarly, “interrupting himself from bread to kvass”, there are also quite well-to-do, and there are also rich people.
Yes, with the financing of public education is not easy. It is almost impossible to calculate what schools receive from chefs in the guise of funds for the overhaul of housing or other items from the budgets of enterprises and farms. No such data. And it would not hurt to know how big this money is, not to know administratively to regulate their flow, but to at least approximately determine the true need of schools for funds. tr.lvivescort.com
