Abstract:

There are many components to, and aspects of, Soviet education but how does the organizational structure of the Soviet educational system favor efficiency and national power. How does the Soviet structure differ from the typical traditional U.S. model. The essay procedes to comment upon the alleged disparity between planning and implementation of Soviet education across the broad demographic and geographic spectrum, with the consequent implications for Soviet national power. It concentrates on structure, and concludes that Soviet technological progress has been accelerated by the structure, but that the national technological demands of competition with the U.S. have exceeded structural benefits to the detriment of quality and quantity of educational system expansion, product, and competition with U.S. computer and other high technologies.
