Society, Schools and Progress in Eastern Europe presents a comprehensive survey of a whole culture, showing the interpretation of its government, technology, religion, social relationships, and arts. This book describes the school system, administration, family influences, and background social forces. Organized into two parts encompassing eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the influence of Soviet educational policies and the communist education in the schools of Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, and Czechoslovakia. This text then examines the factor that raises a number of educational problems in rural areas in Eastern Europe. Other chapters consider the significant role of agriculture in many of the Eastern European countries that affects education in other ways too. This book discusses as well the educational implications of industrial development. The final chapter deals with the educational system in Albania. This book is a valuable resource for students of sociology, government and politics, as well as education.
