Yugoslavia, in its postwar reconstruction, has devoted considerable effort to educational development, especially at the secondary school level. The new General Law on Education of 1958 introduced major reforms and inaugurated a new public school system for the diverse population of the country. The purpose of this study is to present a factual and objective summary of the present legal basis, organization, administration, and program of secondary schools in Yugoslavia, and to describe briefly the development of secondary education from 1946 to 1959, presenting the significant facts and events leading to the passage of the new General Law on Education in 1958. Individual chapters describe: (1) The Yugoslav State--the land and its people, historical background, and the struggle for independence; (2) The school system in prewar Yugoslavia--status of compulsory education, national minorities, organization of the school system, and war devastation; (3) Postwar educational development--early postwar period, compulsory 8-year education, and types of postwar schools; (4) School reform movement--limitations of pre-reform measures, School Reform Commission, UNESCO technical assistance, proposal for school reform, and draft of the General Law on Education; (5) Education under the general law--institutions for preschool education, elementary schools, secondary schools, vocational schools, schools for national minorities, and new laws to follow; (6) Administration of schools under the new general law--the school committee, council of teachers, headmaster, other administrative bodies, municipal organization, district organization, republic organization, Federal Council of Education, and vertical linking in administrative organization; and (7) Sociopolitical organizations concerned with education--the role of the League of Communists in education. The summary discusses the progress and problems in Yugoslav education. Appended is the text of the General Law on Education. (Contains 263 footnotes, 44 tables, and 6 charts.)
