In a country where 80 percent of the people are engaged in farming, it is natural to expect that the agricultural schools should play an important part in the general system of education. The act of 1904 on agricultural education constitutes the basis of the organization of the agricultural schools. This act places all private schools under the supervision of the ministry of agriculture and imperial domains, providing at the same time for the maintenance of schools controlled directly by that ministry. Agricultural schools, ministerial as well as private, are exempted by the act from import duty on any books or educational material imported from abroad, and they are granted free use of mails within the Empire. The agricultural schools are divided by the act into three classes: (1) lower or primary; (2) middle or secondary; and (3) higher schools. This bulletin focuses on secondary agricultural education in Russia. A bibliography is included. (Contains 7 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
