The research for this thesis originally sought to develop the perspective that the Khrushchev reforms of 1958 were phenomena of the post war period. During the course of the work, it soon emerged that links existed among education, social, and economic priorities which would not be explained outside the context of earlier experiences and decisions. Soviet educators of the 1920s had relied on experimentation for solutions to education theory and organization. In the 1930s, however, Stalin separated education policy from the administration of the system, largely pre-empting the process of taking decisions on the basis of experiments. The evolution of education and training systems in the Soviet Union (including that envisaged in the 1958 reforms) can be traced against the development of sectoral priorities.
