Abstract

Necessity of poly-cultural education is argued for. It is shown that functions of national languages and cultures are narrowing at the level of both interand intra-ethnic interaction. This is a result of ideas spread among a majority of population that national languages are not in high demand for social self-realization, as well as of poor knowledge of local culture.
