There is no other way but to succeed in the fight against corruption, Ararat Osipian warned in a recent paper, "Education Corruption, Reform, and Growth: Case of Post-Soviet Russia." Saying that students today learn not only their subject matter, "but also pervasive ways and practices of corruption."
The Washington Post http://russianow.washingtonpost.com/2010/08/the-cost-of-a-russian-education.php
O acadêmico Ararat Osipian advertiu num documento recente que “a corrupção na educação corrói a coesão social, porque os estudantes não aprendem só suas matérias, mas também meios escusos e práticas de corrupção”.

169 companies offer custom-written doctoral dissertations for sale in Russia at prices ranging from the equivalent of $900 to $25,000, according to research by Ararat L. Osipian of Vanderbilt University. By one estimate, some 10,000 dissertations are written for pay each year in Russia, nearly one-third of the dissertations defended there. Advanced degrees are popular among Russian politicians. More than half of the members of the State Duma, Russia's main
legislative body, hold doctoral degrees, Osipian reports. The Daily Stat.
