This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a decree issued by the Soviet Government to upgrade the system of vocational and industrial training in the USSR. It claims that vocational and technical educational establishments should gradually be transformed into vocational-technical colleges offering a 3-4 year course combining specialized vocational training with secondary education for graduates of 8-year general schools. Before the promulgation of the decree, 156 establishments had already been reorganized along these lines, but only on an experimental basis. The task of training skilled workers over the next few years will continue to be that of the conventional vocational colleges. On-the-job training will be stressed more in the future. The decree embodies measures for greater Communist indoctrination of students. Many organizational and staff changes are seen in revamping the system. An increase in the need of technical instructors will require a parallel increase of programs and facilities. Refresher courses are planned for faculty members. (Author/GDB)
