[1] Written by Lenin in connection with §4 of the draft resolution of the C.P.C. on the “Moscow Higher State Art and Technical Studios”. Lenin’s proposal was adopted and §4 was approved in the following wording: “Enrolled students shall be deemed fulfilling their academic obligations under study control on the strength of special rules which must be established by the Chief Labour Committee together with the People’s Commissariat for Education within the fortnight and submitted for approval to the Council of People’s Commissars.”

Lenin made the following correction in the note to §3 of the draft: instead of the words “in their preparatory year” he inserted “in all years”. With Lenin’s amendment, the note read: “In all years, the teaching of political science and the fundamentals of the communist world outlook shall be obligatory.”

In this form, the C.P.C. resolution was approved on December 18, 1920.
