Naucno-tehnicka kultura i proizvodno-tehnicko stavaralastvo u Jugoslaviji (Scientific and Technical Culture and Productive Technical Creativity in Yugoslavia).
Federation of Yugoslav Organizations for Technical Culture, Belgrade.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a book prepared by the Federation of Yugoslavia Organizations for Technical Culture ("Narodna Tehnika"). In this book, an attempt is made to (1) establish the current trends in the development of scientific and technical culture and productive technical creativity in children, youth, and adults; (2) identify the reasons for the emergence of fundamental problems and contradictions in the development of scientific and technical culture and its financing; and (3) formulate proposals for a series of measures to advance the socioeconomic conditions for furthering technological progress. After 1958, many reforms in the Yugoslav education system nurtured the expansion of technical education. Progress was faster in elementary schools than in secondary schools because of the immediate incentive to work in factories after graduation from elementary school. Industry has been assisting in the training of technicians, as have the students' own extracurricular technical and scientific organizations. Labor organizations have also been interested in upgrading their members. Narodna Tehnika has failed to date to bring technical know-how to the agricultural sector. (Author/GDB)
