About education in the Parliament of the Second Polish Republic.

In the Second Polish Republic two main concepts of education were defined: national education, represented the National Democracy (Narodowa Demokracja), and state education, proposed by the Sanation camp: the Nonpartisan Bloc for Cooperation with the Government (Bezpartyjny Blok Współpracy z Rządem – BBWR). These two concepts were confronted in the addresses of the MPs and senators in the parliament of the Second Polish Republic which pertained to the legal bases of the education system. However, developing a consensus regarding the education of the young generation in a society divided along national, religious, and political lines turned out to be difficult. It can be proposed that neither Roman Dmowski earlier, nor Józef Piłsudski later managed to fully implement their concepts of education.
