A Yugoslav pedagogue reporting on the advanced state of schooling in Czechoslovakia in 1934 had this to say about Czechoslovak educational literature:

In their reviews, books and lectures many foreign pedagogues are mentioned. One thing is characteristic, however: German pedagogues are mentioned by far the least, regardless of whether they are Austrian or “Reichsdeutsche.” In place of this, they emphasize Tolstoy, J. Dewey, Spencer, M. Montessori and others.1
