Chulpan Khamatova , theater and film actress, TV presenter, a public figure, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation:

“At school I did not like that we were somehow mutually uninteresting each other. I endlessly read in books wins good, it was clear that a good thing is bad. A normal life began in the school – meanness, envy, greed … I do not understand how you can not give written off when asked, and there it was the norm. Once we had a completely fascist experiment – on classroom hours student went into the corridor, and all had to write in a column – behind him – his good qualities and bad. The man came back and had it all to read aloud. Nobody said: “Look, find the strength to talk, looking into the eyes …” In general, if not for two brilliant, ambitious teachers – literature and mathematics – what little of my school years I would like to remember. ”

Vladimir Pozner , journalist, broadcaster and writer:

“I was a fighter. During the first two years I was in school (classes designated in accordance with the students age seven-year period – in the seventh grade, eight-year – in the eighth and so on until graduation, the thirteenth) I always undertaken a fight. As for his age, I was a pretty big boy, fights often ended in my favor. As you would have done with me in a regular school? Punished would have tried to somehow break me and if nothing happened, would be expelled. It would have made many school directors, but not Miss Pratt. At the end of eighth grade, I have it caused me to his office for a talk. She said that I was a great boy, but there is a problem: I too getting ahead in the development of the students in my class. So she decided to move me through the class. So, I will start a new school year is not in the ninth and tenth grade. I cried and begged her not to do so. It seemed to me that I pulled out of my familiar world and thrown into a strange and hostile world. Miss Pratt smiled, patted me on the head and cheered: “Do not cry, Vladi – often called me that in America – all will be well.” So I was in the classroom, where the children were a year or even two older than me … and of course much larger. So I decided to Miss Caroline Pratt cope with my aggressiveness. If I wanted to fight, she did not mind, but offered to fight with those who are able to fight back, so I did not take the habit mutuzit weak. As far as possible my problems with academic performance, this question does not even arise. ”

Sergei Bezrukov , film and theater actor, People’s Artist of Russia:

“School days I remember more than passable. Starting from the moment of the interview, and admission to the school. I note, incidentally, that I went to study at six years. And there was not only the youngest age but also on the growth. I remember the lessons of the world, political information, tan satchel, red “five”, made out of wood on a stick, which were given to the house together with the assessment in the diary. Favorite salmon salad, cooked mum birthday, as well as orange powder deficient in brown plastic pot, slightly reminiscent of “Phantom” when mixed with water. Admission to remember the pioneers in Red Square, Lenin’s mausoleum terrible, long-awaited admission to the Komsomol, the long-awaited only because the hated putting on a shabby red tie, while the older guys have worn ties costume, was unbearable. ”

Artemy Lebedev , designer, businessman, blogger:

“All the exams I wrote off. Especially bad I had with math. So my repetitorsha sat in the courtyard, which I at the time of the break in the exam issued options, and the next time you took the answers. However, I have not written off its own version, and at the time of rewriting all mixed up, for which he received two. I had to be careful to rewrite a leaf.

I went to school for 12 days, before simply could not stand up. He attended the last lesson or two. We were with a friend the keys to the school radio shack. It was unreal kayfno. Firstly, we undressed there and not in the locker room. Second, the radio room was behind the assembly hall, so the keys of the assembly hall were also with us. You could do anything. We are there smoked and listened to DDT and Aquarium. When the last bell rang, I felt an incredible relief. All conventions scattered. The sky brightened.

I did not understand why I was in school. That is, I went every day, even on weekends and holidays dreamed back to the classroom. But I mechanically wrote essays, tasks, reading the program book, taught some nonsense. No joy and no special knowledge is not given to me.
It has been almost 10 years. One day suddenly from somewhere in the depths of all school floated knowledge. At 25, I suddenly realized what it was all necessary. What is wanted from me. Why am I writing essays. Surfaced figures, facts, sequences, methods and examples. And I promised myself that I will always tell and teach me to understand even people with developmental delays, as I am. ”

Ivan Okhlobystin , film and television actor, screenwriter and playwright:

“I remember in elementary school, I fell in love with the daughter of the chairman of a collective farm. He carried her bag, and then offered to flee to Africa. The girl accepted without any doubt, and one morning, stuffed backpacks sandwiches, instead of school, we went to the Black Continent. Before you need to go to the station it was about two kilometers through the field. It began to rain … We hid in a haystack, I gently took my companion’s hand and wanted to have a declaration of love, as here in front of us there was farmer’s face …

Ginny brought in Psalms school. Dilapidated yellow pages, beaten beetle and corruptible smelling … smell maddening any bookseller, a lover of ancient literature. For me it was an artifact, a book of fairy tales, but for her – a senseless thing. I brought the camera to school “Smena-8M” and we exchanged. I realized that a little while in the Eternal Book. I saw her, smelled, stroked the page, put on her head. And then a classmate’s father found out that his daughter exchanged on an ancient tome, considered it nonsense, saying that deliver profitable rare little thing in the second-hand bookshop. I had to return the Psalter. Though I did not show it, but he was deeply unhappy. Splinter stuck in my heart.

Then one day, putting things in the classroom, in one of the desks, I discovered the Bible. This was a modern edition, printed on tissue paper. From surprise I almost dropped from the hands of a pack of washing powder “News”. And as there was no wonder! It seems to be the average time of a deaf school of socialism, and here on you, twice classmates drag oneself along lessons about the forbidden book. “This is the fate of the sign, can not miss it” – I said to myself and stole the Bible without remorse. ”

Tatiana Tarasova , figure skating coach, honored coach of the USSR:

“The most terrible parental anger I felt at myself in the eighth grade when I decided to devote more time to training and on the advice of the nearest friend Ira Lyulyakovo went to school for working youth. I left the school, which has already worked lab sister Galya, which has always sought to schoolteachers. After the first quarter I went to the director and said that I was going to school for working youth. For some reason he just gave me the documents. I have great success beginning from November to attend classes, only three times a week. It was only in February-March, my mother asked: “Why are you the last time you sit at home in the morning, why not in school?” – “Mom, – I answered, – I from November in a completely different school of learning …”. Mother raged for a long time, then calmed down.

And we are in our 18th school where I studied children from ensemble Igor Aleksandrovich Moiseyev from art school and figure skaters, sedately came the day classes in school uniforms and aprons, with us doing wonderful teachers, and the only difference from an ordinary school was only that in the class have proved to a maximum of eight people, of course, the program has been studied and better and faster compared to the class, where thirty or forty students sitting. There I became friends with Nikita Mikhalkov, who had just started to act in films. Such a miserly amount of classmates, oddly enough, allowing us to quite often skip classes. However, my mother once went to school with verification and evening asks me: “Tanya, where were you this morning?” – “And what day is today?” – Ask here, I return the question, wondering what it was she was getting at. “Thursday”. – “Where should I be, if not in school” – without hesitation I say, and immediately get a spanking. ”
