Schools for Rural Youth


general-education institutions in the USSR at which students received instruction without interrupting their agricultural work. The first schools for rural youth were opened in 1944 and offered instruction at the level of the primary and seven-year schools. The schools, which were established in large settlements, and at kolkhozes, sovkhozes, and machine-tractor stations, covered the first through fourth grades or the first through seventh grades. In 1956, the first secondary schools for rural youth, covering the fifth through tenth grades and the eighth through tenth grades, were opened. In 1958 the schools for rural youth were renamed evening (shift) secondary general-education schools.
