away from the educational equity which was once perhaps the most admirable voiced objective of the former Soviet Union. Expertise is becoming increasingly available in Kazakstan to those children whose parents can afford to pay extra for better teachers and better facilities. For rural and impoverished schools, the future remains bleak. In Kazakstan, tensions between expertise and responsiveness are the conundrum of its schools' past and future.
