'WIEZ' JOURNAL COMMUNITY TOWARDS THE REFORMS OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM IN 1950S AND 1960S. (Srodowisko miesiecznika 'Wiez' wobec reform systemu oswiaty i wychowania lat piecdziesiatych i szescdziesiatych)
After October 1956, the rebirth of Catholic journalism was seen. A new monthly journal 'Wiez' was published in 1958 by young Catholics who had left 'PAX' in the summer of 1955. The group of columnists gathered around 'Wiez' journal fostered the traditional Catholic values, encouraged participation in the Catholic community and promoted the idea of social commitment of Catholics. They acknowledged the fact of implementation of socialist reforms in Poland as inevitable. Apart from socio-cultural and historical issues, long-term intellectual work on shaping young Poles attitudes and behaviour was of interest to the 'Wiez' journal community. According to 'Wiez' journal editors, it was education that ascribed the main role in the process of building a human society and social order. The interests of 'Wiez' journal community in the educational issues resulted from the above premises. 'Wiez' journal community willingly accepted the readiness of the Polish educational authorities for wide-ranging reforms in 1956/57 and 1961. The complex educational problems were repeatedly analysed in 'Wiez' journal.
