Transcript simple forms in the lower classes, but becomes more definite and well organised in the upper classes. Corporal punishment is forbidden by law and if punishment of any kind is administered it is generally by decision of the naughty child's school mates. From talks we had with a number of teachers at schools, kindergartens, children's homes and colonies, it would appear that this system has proved very successful. The studies in the schools of rural areas have a general agricultural bias and in industrial areas they have an industrial-technical bias in accordance with the industries of the district in which the school is situated. Indeed many of the schools which immediately after the revolution had been run by particular trade unions and were only later transferred to State support are still run in very close connection with these trades. Thus, one such school we visited in Kharkov was attended almost exclusively by children of metal workers—1,000 out of 1,200 pupils being metal workers' children. A Visit to a Kharkov Single Labour School The hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., depending upon the age of the children, the youngest leaving at 1 p.m. There are about the same number of boys and girls at the school. Here children are accepted at seven years of age and continue until they reach the age of fifteen. During their last few years at the school it is observed for what subject the pupils have most ability, and on completing the school course, they are sent to a trade school for two years, after which they are apprenticed to their trade for two years, and are then entitled to attend some higher educational institution or university. All ordinary school subjects are taught including the German language. The children themselves elect their own Executive Committee and decide what action is to be taken with children who transgress the rules of the school. No punishments are inflicted. In cases of refractory children the parents are consulted and their home conditions examined. Difficult children are separated and put into smaller classes, so that they may receive individual attention. Executive Committee meetings are held once a week, in addition there is a general monthly meeting of the scholars. The Pedagogical Committee meets as necessity demands, sometimes fortnightly, sometimes monthly. There is also a weekly meeting of specialist teachers, i.e., teachers of one particular subject. A Parents' Committee is also formed and acts as an advisory and consultative body. Two doctors are co-opted on the Pedagogical Committee and also on the Parents' Committee. Once in three months there is a Joint General Meeting of the Pedagogical Committee, the Parents' Committee and the Executive Committee of the Children. The Town Soviet (council) of workers' deputies is also represented at the school to look after the children's interests. The teachers occasionally give lectures to the parents of the children on education, how to rear children, &c. In addition, the director of the school often gives lectures to factory workers' meetings. We were informed that about a year ago representatives of the Women's Departments of the Communist Party and trade unions formed a committee to look after the welfare of the children.
