Academy of Communist Upbringing

 

(AKV; full name, N. K. Krupskaia Academy of Communist Upbringing), a higher pedagogical educational institution existing from 1923 to 1935. It was created on the basis of the Academy of Social Upbringing, which was founded in 1919. The AKV accepted communists and komsomols with a high school education and work experience in people’s education. The academy graduated high school teachers in social disciplines, specialists in pedagogy and political and educational work, and leading workers for raion, city, and oblast divisions of people’s education and for general and special schools. It had a four-year program, with the first two years devoted to general education. There was also a two-year organizers and inspectors department open to people with at least three years of Party membership and five years of leadership work in people’s education. In 1927 the academy created the evening Pedagogical University for raising the qualifications of educational workers. N. K. Krupskaia, P. P. Blonskii, and others taught at the academy. In 1934 the academy was transferred to Leningrad, and in 1935 it was reorganized into the N. K. Krupskaia Communist Pedagogical Institute, which merged with the A. I. Herzen Leningrad Pedagogical Institute in 1941.
