Education in Yugoslavia. Bulletin, 1939, No. 6

The earnestness, even eagerness, with which the nations newly created or recreated at the close of the World War, went to work to build efficient school systems was and is one of the strongest expressions in modern times of fine faith in education. From time to time the Office of Education has reported on these new school systems. Accounts have been published of education in Estonia, Free City of Danzig, Irish Free State, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Germany. This bulletin adds another to the series, which will be of general interest to educators in this country as well as of specific help to school officials who deal with student transfers. Not a great deal has been written in the United States about education among the Southern Slavs and this account of education in Yugoslavia will to some extent overcame that lack. The reader will find that the Yugoslavians also made provision for education to be a major part of their program for national unity and development. To gather the data for this report, the author spent 2 months in Yugoslavia visiting the schools, conferring with the Ministry of Education and other official organizations, and acquainting himself generally with education conditions in The Kingdom. This bulletin contains the following chapters: (1) The country and its education system; (2) Infant and elementary education; (3) General secondary education; (4) Specialized secondary schools; (5) Education and status of teachers; (6) Institutions of higher education; and (7) General cultural and welfare agencies. Appended are: (1) Organization of the Ministry of Education; (2) Chief Council of Education; (3) Inspection of schools; (4) Banovina School Board; and (5) Incomplete statistics of education for 1936-37. (Contains 33 tables.) Individual chapters contain bibliography and footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
