A.S MAKARENKO: A PEDAGOGIC PRINCIPLE

Collectives, groups in upbringing, education


Where educators are not united into a group, and the group has no single plan of work, no single tone, no single exact approach, there can be no process of education
Anton Semenovich Makarenko


Translation

Russian-speakers will have noticed that I have translated kollektiv into English here as 'group'.

I have agonised about this, seeing pluses and minuses in doing so but in the end, granting inclusion of this brief explanatory note, I have come down on the side of doing so.

By the same token I have translated vospitateli/vospitanie as 'educators'/'education'.

Hungarian-speakers may do what they will with czoport, nevelés etc!
