Title: Štátny pedagogický ústav a príprava učebníc v rokoch 1947 – 1952

(The National Institute for Education and the Phenomenon of Preparation of School Books in the Years 1947 – 1952)

Abstract: This submitted contribution deals with the participation of the National institute for Education in school-books preparing. After the WWII there was serious lack of school-books related to many subjects or using of them was politically incorrect. After the installation of communist regime many school-books or studying-texts were not compatible with newly adopted school curriculums. This problem was a result of more and more intensive enforcement of ideological demands. Both official tasks – revision of already existing school-books and creating /with research/ new texts – were the important professional base of the National Institute for Education, especially after the year 1949. The participation of this pedagogical institution in described activities took two main forms – official management of many review procedures in case of individual authors (but in case of authors groups too) and guaranteeing of commissions for school-books creating. Every author was in process of school-book writing, obliged to cooperate with the National Institute for Education. But no every school-book, planned to the start of the school year 1950/1951, was released in proper time, because the process of their preparation was complicated by spectrum of problems and complications.
