Institutional Model of Development of the System of Education and its Empirical Justification


  • Timoshenkov Igor V.

    () (Kharkiv University of Humanities)


The article offers an institutional model of development of the educational system and provides its empirical justification. It reveals a dual role played by economic institutes in functioning and development of the educational system: on the one hand, they bring the order of the society on specific forms and directions of educational training to the educational system, on the other - they perform the reverse impact upon society through supply of educational services and formation of the social status of education in society. It identifies that development of the educational system of Ukraine is impeded by a number of institutional traps existing in the society - compositions of such institutional factors and conditions of development of education, which, on the one hand, are internally inter-justifies, inter-dependent and envisage a necessity of their joint development, and on the other - are in antagonistic contradiction with each other, blocking or excluding action of each other by their existence (necessity to improve quality of state management of education versus absence of interest of officials in it, need in strengthening control over quality of educating students versus absence of interest of lecturers and administration of higher educational establishments in it). The main theoretical conclusions of the article are justified with the help of obtained results of the study: "Attitude of entrepreneurs to the problems of development of education and mechanisms of interaction of the labour market and market of educational services in Ukraine" (Kharkiv, October - November 2012, n = 212) and "Study of models of behaviour of students in the market of educational services of Ukraine" (Kharkiv, October - November 2012, n = 464).
