The purpose of this bulletin and of the forthcoming "Part II: Studies and Students" is to provide current basic information on the Polish system of higher education. The material is intended primarily for scholars in the comparative education field, university officials, students involved in academic exchanges, and specialists on Eastern Europe. Sources include current Polish laws on education and higher education, published Polish statistics and handbooks, as well as discussions with education officials and educators in the Ministry of Higher Education, the Ministry of Education, and in higher and other educational institutions in Warsaw and Cracow. The document provides a brief background on the elementary-secondary education system and the Ministry of Education before describing the higher education system. The Ministry of Higher Education is the chief authority over higher education, and specifically has oversight of universities, higher technical schools, higher schools of agriculture, and higher schools of economics. Other ministries oversee specialty programs, e.g., the Ministry of Education has jurisdiction over higher schools of pedagogy. Appended are lists: (1) Polish institutions of higher education under the Ministry of Higher Education--universities, higher technical schools, higher schools of agriculture, and higher schools of economics; (2) Schools under the Ministry of Education--higher schools of pedagogy; (3) Schools under the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare--medical academies, higher schools of music, higher schools of plastic arts, and higher schools of theater and films; (4) Schools under the Central Committee on Physical Culture and Tourism--higher schools of physical education; and (6) Itinerary of authors in Poland, March 1961.
