Obraz nauczyciela PRL w świetle własnych wspomnień
The Image of a Teacher in Communist Poland in the Light of Personal Memories
Languages of publication
This article presents the place and the role of teachers in the Polish People’s Republic (PRL) from the perspective of several decades. This issue is approached, however, not in light of the preserved archival documents, produced in the centres of power, but based on accounts-memoirs of teachers and students. It is necessary to create an image of a teacher in the Polish People’s Republic because of the role that they played in educating and shaping generations of Poles who lived and worked in times of limited freedom, took part in the political upheaval and actively participated in the deep transformations that took place in the country in the last twenty-five years. It is teachers who played a special role in the implementation of educational policy in the PRL.
