This article is devoted to the problem of studying the methodology and strategies of modernization of education in the Russian socio-cultural tradition. The modernization process currently underway in the national education system of Russia and domestic pedagogical science actualizes the need to analyze educational transformations over the past century. This circumstance is of extremely important fundamental and scientific and practical importance for the development of strategic parameters for the comprehensive modernization of the modern national education system. The methodological significance of the study lies in the urgent need for a projective-analytical reconstruction of the multidimensional process of development of promising strategies for modernization and reform of education. The chronological and analytical correlation of the evolution of Russian studies of educational systems at this historical stage within the dynamics of socio-cultural development is essential here. It also seems timely to study the pedagogical dimensions of the development of the national education system based on the study of the contribution of leading Russian scientists to the understanding of modernization processes. This will allow to harmonize and integrate various research models of the national pedagogical tradition, which will contribute to the development of the theory and practice of the functioning of educational systems. The applied significance of the research is connected with the urgent tasks of rethinking the existing experience of the strategic development of national education systems. A certain research interest is the process of scientific, methodological and analytical support for the formation of mechanisms for the introduction of strategic models of modernization and concepts of reforming modern domestic education. This research will contribute to the accumulation of knowledge about the current state and development of the complex of sciences of education and their role in the process of modernization and reform of Russian education. It will also make it possible, in the conditions of increasing globalization, to scientifically design promising and futurologically meaningful models of strategic development and management practices in the national education system.
