This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a resolution of the Soviet Government adopted at the 22nd Party Congress which determined the improvement of public education in the USSR. One of the key points was the implementation of universal secondary education for all school age children and eight-year schooling for working youth not receiving such an education. Young people will continue to be provided with general labor and polytechnical education. Grades 9, 10, and 11 of a number of schools will be giving their pupils a more thorough theoretical and practical grounding in mathematics and computing techniques, in physics, in chemistry, in biology, and the humanities. By 1970, universal secondary education must be completely introduced. Great attention is paid to concrete measures in the resolution to improve curriculum content. The resolution also establishes the maximum number of hours of compulsory courses per week. Vocational guidance is stressed for career selection in economic enterprises, collective farms, and cultural endeavors. A more rational distribution of studies is sought during the years of labor training. Wide use will be made of radio, television, and films in public schools. (Author/GDB)
