Nadezhda Konstantinovna Krupskaya

  • Mihail S. Skatkin
  • Georgij S. Tsov'janov


Krupskaya's ideas on polytechnic and labour education, on the harmonious development of the personality and self-management in schools, on close links between school and daily life, the family and the community, on the teacher, together with her critical survey of the foundations of educational science at home and abroad, were a valuable element in the heritage of Soviet educational science.

Her name was held in high esteem in the USSR as a person who dedicated her life to the struggle for the victory of socialism and the flourishing of Soviet culture. Many schools, scientific and cultural institutions and streets bore her name.
