Transcript EDUCATIONAL WORK Altho our successes on this field of action have been neither many nor great, yet we have by our experiences learnt much. W7e have arrived at conclusions in this matter which coincide with our conclusions on other fields of work. It is plain to us that this work in common with all our other forms of activity cannot meet with any great measure of success within the bounds of our present organization. Particularly evident in our educational work is the injurious division into "inside" and "outside" activity.

In our present form of organization the latter term has no meaning.

Thus only in the workshops can we successfully attack and break down the barriers of bourgeois educational customs and traditions. OUR PRESS Until quite recently our organs have paid very little attention to the conditions in the workshops. Almost all the reports published deal with the small shops and usually with particular cases of exploitation. The work of reporting the shop activities has been \ 26
