An organization of Ukrainian secondary-school teachers, founded in 1908 in Bukovyna and centered in Chernivtsi. In 1913 it had 80 members.

Together with the Teachers' Hromada in Lviv it published, from 1911, the pedagogical journal Nasha shkola. The leaders of the organization were Ivan Pryima, Ahenor Artymovych, Myron Korduba, and Volodymyr Kmitsykevych. It ceased operation in 1914.
