The scientists of the Ural Federal University, analyzed the statistics and came to the conclusion that there is inequality in the field of higher education in the regions and federal districts of the Russian Federation.

According to the head of research of Harold Zborowski, there are only 1-2 high school in many regions of Russia. And even they are under threat of closure. Without their own high schools remained and a few large cities.
