Constitutive discontinuity. Education and pedagogy in the socialistic
dr. Nataša Vujisić-Živković

Summary:   This paper treats the discontinuity in educational policy and pedagogical science in the period of Yugoslav socialism in Serbia. It has been stated that during that period a modernized educational system was being built. Today a deeper understanding and review of that new system is necessary in order to build a comprehensive picture of the development of education in Serbia. The essential principles of Serbian/Yugoslav Marxist pedagogy are discussed in particular, and some of its contradictions, developmental stages and achievements are pointed out in detail. In this context, the particular issues on further study of the socialist period in the development of Serbian education and pedagogy are initiated, in order to find its adequate place in the explanation of the way Serbian pedagogy developed its identity and the role in creating the educational policy.
