Sažetak The extension of secondary school education for adult population within an organised and informal institution called Ekstenza was started in Karlovac in 1920. The aim of the institution was general increas in the level of education of adult population.
The initiators of the institution had already been active members of the Educational Committee which was founded in 1910 by the municipal authorities. The Committee operated in the Municipal Library as an indipendent center of public eductional work.
In 1919, Hogo Sedlaček, one of the most important members of the Educational Committee, became its president and at the same time he assumed the duty of the headmaster in the Royal Grammer School in Karlovac. Thus he integrated the work of both the Educational Committee and the Ekstenza Institution and became the main
exponent of the latter.
During the first school year of 1920/1921 the activities of the Ekstenza institution took place in the Royal Grammer School building. Those included lectures on literature, astronomy, philosophy, science, hygienics and many other fields organised in six month sets. The lecturers were intelectuals, mainly teachers, lawyers and doctors who
gave lectures every evening except Saturday and Sunday for all those who were interested "disregarding their sex and level of education". Altogether 220 lectures were held during that year. Beside those, evening socials, adult literacy courses and very popular
Sunday lectures were organised in the great Townhall which were attended by the intelectuals not only from Karlovac but from the whole of Croatia.
In the course of next five years the activities of the Ekstenza institution were far less intensive than during the first year.
During that period 262, public educational lectures were held in the Girls' School in Karlovac. Until 1924 the freguency of lectures was two times a week between October and April, and in the following two years lectures became less freguent. The activities of the Ekstenza Institution in Karlovac terminated in 1926. From the October of that year the Educational Committee and the Ekstenza institution
were to limit their work exclusevly on popular Sunday lectures in the Townhall. In 1932, according to the directives from the Ministery of Education, the educational work of the Ekstenza institution was continued by the University Extension.
However, the activities of the University Extension never menaged to acheive neither the intensity nor diversity of those of the secondary school Ekstenza Institution.
