Transcript Workers' Faculties The Soviet State is frankly a workers' state and it seeks above all and beyond all to govern the country exclusively for the benefit of the industrial and peasant toiling masses. Since the education of these classes of the population was terribly neglected in Tsarist Russia it is but natural that comparatively few workers and peasants—both men and women, particularly women, are at present prepared educationally to benefit by attendance at a university. In order, however, to give peasants and workers who have not had a secondary education an opportunity of preparing for the university, special schools have been organised for adult workers ; these are known as " Workers' Faculties." There are both day and evening Workers' Faculties. The students who attend in the daytime usually have State scholarships of about 20 roubles a month, some of the unions granting their students further assistance. Certain enterprises also grant scholarships. On January 1, 1925, about 30 per cent, of the students enjoyed such scholarships. In addition, there is a " Society for Assisting Proletarian Students," which organises dining rooms where students get three meals a day free of charge. One such dining room which we visited in Rostov provided meals for 1,500 students daily. Each University, Workers' Faculty, &c. sends up its list of students requiring assistance to the headquarters of the Society in the town and if the funds or room are insufficient for all requiring help the most needy are chosen. The one we saw at Rostov was very clean, but very simply furnished with wooden tables and benches. They made up for it, however, by a beautifully painted ceiling and walls—executed, we were told, by some of the students themselves. In addition, there were, of course, the usual portraits of revolutionary leaders and revolutionary slogans on the walls. Similar students' dining rooms have been organised in most of the large towns. The evening faculties are attended by workers, who work in the daytime. The following table shows the number of students admitted to the 1924-25 session in the R.S.F.S.R. and the proportion of women admitted :— Students Admitted to Workers' Faculties in 1924-25 Day Evening Total students admitted- Number of women Total students admitted Number of women Moscow Leningrad Other towns 1,822 1,530 5,502 263 201 768 1,061 371 630 126 37 82 Total in R.S.F.S.R 8,854 1,232 2,662 245 There are in all ninety-two Workers' Faculties in the R.S.F.S.R., seventeen of which are in Moscow. The other Republics have similar institutions in all the large towns. The proportion of women students in the day Faculties was 18-61 per cent, of the total number of students in 1924-25; in the evening Faculties this proportion was 15-18 per cent. These proportions are not recognised as by any means satisfactory and fresh endeavours are being made to (56)
