Schools, libraries and the new political system in Hungary

NAGY Attila

Unesco's International Literacy Year as well as the dramatic political changes in Hungary both motivated the organization of the international conference “School and library in the turn of the century” (Budapest, National Széchényi Library, March 2, 1990). Apart from reviewing the most important problems (devaluation of knowledge, decrease in education, the poor quality of reading skills and habits etc.) efforts were also made to call the attention of the political parties coming to power to the problems of public education and public libraries.
