Problems Facing Educational Planners in the Soviet Union Today. The Fundamentals of Educational Planning: Lecture-Discussion Series No. 5.
Jamin, V. A.
This paper discusses two current problems of concern to educational planners in the U.S.S.R. and describes the approaches being taken to address them. One major objective of Soviet educational planners is to greatly expand the percentage of students receiving a complete secondary education. This will require considerable expansion and restructuring of the secondary school system, with special attention to the role of technicums, or specialized secondary schools. A second major planning problem is the need to consolidate the large number of small rural schools into larger schools that are both more effective educationally and more efficient economically. Following the discussion of these planning objectives is a question-and-answer section, in which the author responds to specific questions about his discussion and about the process of educational planning in the U.S.S.R. In addition, a brief outline and diagram of the structure of the Soviet educational system are also included. (JG)
