Residential Folk High Schools in Eastern Europe and the Baltic States.
Kulich, Jindra
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v21 n2 p178-90 Mar-Apr 2002
In Eastern Europe, Poland has the longest history of folk high schools. Although closed in Hungary during the 1950s, folk high schools have recently reemerged. There were attempts to establish them in Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia following independence. Although the residential aspect of folk schools is desirable, economic and social conditions in postcommunist societies pose operational challenges. (Contains 44 references.) (SK)
