Analyzing illiteracy in Kosovo between
1921 and 1981, the author stresses
that there has been great progress
in wiping it out, as a result of efforts
on socialist transformation. In spite
of that, the situation is still unfavourable
in the Province as a whole, and
especially in the village, where 74.2%
of all illiterate people live. There are
many more illiterate women than there
are men in all age groups. According
to data from 1981, 10.9% of all the
men were illiterate, and 29.2% of all
the women.
The author considers that the basic
reasons for illiteracy among young people
in the village are the following:
unfavourable conditions inherited from
before World War II, the fact that all
children have not been included in
primary education, the fact that all villages
(about 1,400) are not covered by
the network of primary schools (about
850), the unfavourable spatial distribution
of schools and their great distance
from the homes of pupils, the fact
that children leave primary school before
finishing it, illiteracy among parents
and their conservative attitude
towards schooling their children, especially
girls, self-sufficient farming,
which needs extensive child labour,
Considering the high deoree of illiteracy
among the village population of
Kosovo, the continuing formation of
new illiterate persons and the far-reaching
negative effects illiteracy has
on the progress of individuals, the population,
the economy and the society,
the author emphaiszes the great need
for more effective primary schooling,
and also for other socio-cultural, economic
and political institutions to increase
activities to root out illiteracy. Illiteracy in the village must be completely
wiped out, or at least reduced
to the least possible measure in the
older generation also. This is the basic
pre-condition for the Kosovo rural community
to be integrated into self-management
and wider social currents.
