Training of Teachers for the Far North of the U.S.S.R. in Leningrad.
Belikov, L. V.
Teacher training programs for the Soviet Far North are reviewed from inception of the North Group of Leningrad University in 1926 to the present. In the 1930's the Northern Peoples Institute, for example, trained teachers from elementary levels up through the higher stages of education to ensure the training of northerners in different specialties necessary for successful development of a socialist economy. The need for more teachers prompted expansion of the teacher training programs as well as increases in the development of curricula, and teaching specialties were created in philology, physics and mathematics, natural sciences, fine arts, and physical training. Several instances are given to indicate the value of the Northern Department of Hertzen Pedagogical Institute in developing minority intellectuals and in providing teachers.
