ROBERT THURSTON (El Paso, Tex., U.S.A.) DEVELOPING EDUCATION IN LATE IMPERIAL RUSSIA: THE CONCERNS OF STATE, “SOCIETY,” AND PEOPLE IN MOSCOW, 1906-14 * Discussions of the history of education in late Imperial Russia commonly speak of a clash over educational policy between the state and “society,” the country’s educated, progressive elite ( obshchestvo ). [1] These accounts argue that “society” wished to have a “ladder system” of public instruction, that is, a single educational structure permitting progression from elementary school to the universities; the state, however, was unwilling or unable to implement this goal. [2] Most inquiries also depict a bitter debate between the two sides over control of education on the local level. In addition, the obshchestvo is said to have greatly resented the state’s reduction of university autonomy, for example when troops broke up student meetings at Moscow Imperial University in 1911. Most studies of this clash between state and society and of Russian education in general during the last decades of the old regime concentrate on national policy and politics.
