This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a summary of the contents of a decree covering the education objectives, theories, research, and future legislation as envisioned by the Soviet Academy of Pedagogical Sciences. Although the decree praises the outstanding past achievements of the Soviet education system, it discusses the serious shortcomings of the system also. The present state of educational research is considered inadequate to meet current needs. There are serious shortcomings in the training of teachers. In the Soviet scheme and philosophy, education has the highest priority, and of course extremely heavy demands are made upon it. The decree envisages a considerable enlargement of the sphere of activity of the USSR Academy of Pedagogical Sciences--it will be responsible for coordination of research in educational theory, educational psychology, development physiology, data gathering about education domestic and foreign, and educational research in the Soviet republics. Measures are being taken to increase the number of research students and to raise the standards of teacher training. Input from teachers in evaluating educational theory and practice should expand greatly to assist meaningful analysis. (Author/GDB)
