This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a survey of Bulgarian education in the postwar period. Included in the survey are discussions of pre-school education, polytechnical schools (grades 1 through 9), the teaching process, teacher training, school administration, vocational education, and higher education. The point is made that about 25% of Bulgarian students attend universities, providing the administrative and technical leadership of the nation. The principles of administration that regulate Bulgarian education are based on the concepts of unitary organization and democratic centralism. No tuition is charged for higher education; entry is by competitive examinations. The survey emphasizes the nation's emphasis on scientific and technical education, integrated with its political system and objectives. (Author/GDB)
