Schools for Young Workers

 

general-education schools in the USSR at which students received instruction without leaving their jobs. The first schools for young workers were established in 1943 and were called schools for adolescents working at enterprises; in 1944 they were renamed schools for young workers. The schools, which offered general educational training comparable with seven-year and secondary schools, covered the fifth through seventh grades and fifth through tenth grades. In 1958 the schools for young workers were renamed evening (shift) secondary general-education schools (seeEVENING EDUCATION).
