Transcript I Chapter XIII EDUCATION THE whole work of education—elementary, secondary, technical, university and so on—is administered by the Commissariat (or Ministry) for Education of each Constituent Republic of the Union. The Commissariat includes various departments for dealing with the different branches of education. Each Commissariat has local departments throughout the Republic attached to the Executive Committees (i.e., the local Government Authority). In addition the local Soviet usually organises a special section on National Education, which ensures the direct participation of representatives of the workers and peasants in the educational work of their locality. From the very first it was the aim of the Soviet Government to organise free education for all children. Immediately after the Revolution a large network of kindergartens, creches and children's homes were organised, but the long years of civil war and blockade so weakened the State that expenses on education had to be cut down and by 1922 the number of these schools, creches, &c, had decreased considerably. Since then, and particularly during the last two years, there has been a marked revival in the development of education. Nevertheless, the Soviet Government is still far from able to satisfy all the needs of National Education. Since the number of schools are inadequate to the demand, preference is given to the children of the workers and peasants. The children of employers, private traders and the free professions, naturally have greater opportunities of receiving education at home and are therefore only admitted after the demands of the working classes have been satisfied. Pre-School Education In addition to the creches and kindergartens attached to a large number of factories which is dealt with in the chapter on Women in Industry, there are also district creches and kindergartens. These are not yet sufficient to satisfy the demand, but they are being organised as fast as means permit, and, considering the fact that there were scarcely any such institutions for the Workers in Tsarist Russia, the progress made is not inconsiderable. Thus, over the whole of the U.S.S.R., excluding Trans- Caucasia, there were on January 1, 1924, 1,109 pre-school institutions (creches and kindergartens), 16,910 schools for seven-yearolds and a number of homes and permanent children's colonies for children of pre-school age. The latter are distinct from the summer colonies which are organised for town children during the summer months, some excellent examples of which we saw in Georgia. All the Republics of the Union have similar Institutions and we visited a number of well-equipped and excellently organised kindergartens and creches in the Ukraine, Georgia, and other parts of the Union.
