Introduction. Education is of priority interest for the state. The future of Russia, its economic development, and the level of welfare in the society largely depend on its quality. Therefore, identification and study of the peculiarities of the legal regulation of the right to education in the regions of Russia is a relevant topic. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the legislation of the Republic of Mordovia on education, to identify whether consideration is given to socio-economic, national, geographical, ethnocultural, demographic and other features of the region when laws are made.

Materials and Methods. The rules of the current legislation of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Mordovia on education were used as the materials for the study. Open data from municipal budgetary educational institutions of the Republic of Mordovia formed the information base of the research. The study employed the method of systemic and structural analysis, that of comparison, as well as the formal logical method.

Results. The study has revealed the peculiarities of the region taken into account in the Republic of Mordovia in the process of rule-making in the field of education: the ethnic, economic, geographical, and socio-economic ones. It has been established that in the Republic of Mordovia additional guarantees are provided for the realization of the constitutional right to education: material support is provided to orphans and children left without parental care whose tuition is paid for from the federal or republican budget.

Discussion and Conclusion. The research results made it possible to draw the conclusion that consideration of the peculiarities of Mordovia in regional legislation on education is at the appropriate level. Further research may be associated with identifying the regional features and introducing them into the legislation of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The data obtained will be useful to regional authorities and administrations of municipal districts when drafting regu­lations and drawing up programs for the development of education in the region.
