The problem of efficiency of anti-corruption policy in Russia after the adoption of the Federal law "On combating corruption" is always the focus of extensive debate and analysis. The attention of the public and researchers especially involved with corruption in the public service, persons occupying positions of the Russian Federation, positions of constituent entities of the Russian Federation. A significant amount of relevant information on this topic gets in the media, journalists write about corruption, exposed the corruption, give the public information about the actions of the investigative agencies to combat corruption. However, corruption in the education system is on the periphery of public discussions. It is a well-known fact that the most characteristic sign of corruption is the conflict between the activities of the authorized person (officer, Deputy, judge, law enforcement officer, administrator, teacher, physician, etc.) and interests of society. The main determinant of this is the use of authority to obtain benefits in circumstances when the risk of being exposed and punished is minimal.
