The main task of patriotic education is the formation of social experience in the younger generation, the inheritance of the spiritual heritage of the Russian people, the development in them, regardless of the nation, of such features of a citizen of the Russian state as developed spirituality, moral, artistic and aesthetic, legal, labor, and environmental culture. This task should be concretized through a system of educational tasks that are common not only to educational institutions, but also to the entire society as a whole.
