This text is an appeal to Polish Members of Parliament - members of National and Ethnic Minorities Committee visiting Pomeranian Region in July 2010 to take notice of the social usefulness of Folk High Schools. The author recalls the contributions of those institutions in the development of Polish rural areas, and shows - on the example of Kashubian Folk High School - how important those institutions of adult education can be in building local democracy outside big agglomerations also today. The appeal, in a form of a typical gloss, once again tries to encourage the members of the Parliament of the Republic of Poland to make the effort of providing comprehensive regulation of legal and organizational situation of Polish Folk High Schools and other adult education entities of non-commercial character.
