Stalin's Use Of Propaganda

Good Essays
Indoctrination is the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically. Stalin used a lot of propaganda to glorify communism and his goal which was to industrialize the USSR. Stalin’s educational policy was to increase economic and industrial production while molding children’s minds to communist ideology. Children were taught scientific and engineering developments, emphasized vocational training, combated illiteracy to improve efficiency in workplace, and were taught a set of standard rules of education all children had to learn. Propaganda was placed in all schools, children entered youth groups (Komsomol and Pioneers), and were presented communist heroes which were role models for communist objectives and values.
