Pupils from Magnitogorsk are sitting for examinations to the Bashkir Gymnasium N1 by Rami Garipov today. Ten thousand Bashkirs live in Magnitogorsk now and education in Bashkortostan gives young people from other regions the chance not just to get qualitative education but to join their national roots, studying national language, culture and traditions.

The enrolment to the boarding innovational schools in Bashkortostan runs in accordance with the agreements about cooperation in humanitarian sphere, signed by the Republic with other Russian regions, where Bashkir population compactly lives – Chelyabinsk, Sverdlovsk, Kurgan, Orenburg and Perm regions, Republic of Tatarstan, Khanty-Mansiysky autonomous district and other regions. Ministry of education RB allocates the quotes for Bashkir pupils from these regions for studying at local boarding innovational schools. The executive committee of the World Bashkir Congress reports that in 2008 more than 240 pupils have used these quotes.
