A Study of Teacher’s Preferences by Using of Statistical Methods



In this paper the mathematical statistics is used for investigation of the teaching Orthodox culture in the former USSR. An example is considered religious education in Lithuania and Russia. These two countries were choosing because Lithuania was the first Republic of the former USSR in which religious education rather successful was introduced after the Soviet time. In contrast, in Russia teaching of religion culture was introduced relatively recently and still there are a lot of debate and difficulties.
