Summary/Abstract: During the early years of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (The Kingdom of SHS) the educational situation was very poor in Herzegovina. Low levels of literacy (in certain parts over 90%) combined with a small number of educational institutions, gave a negative image which was complicated even further by the lack of resources and sluggish state administration. From the mid-1920s, the situation took a turn for better. Building schools and literacy courses were important even if inadequate steps in solving the mounting problems in this area. The aim of this study, through an analytical-synthetic approach, is to contribute to the understanding of the education system in Herzegovina during the fi rst period of the Yugoslav monarchy (1918-1929). Furthermore, it aims to clarify the role of the state in creating an overall education milieu by analysing socio-political trends.
