asked the President of the Board of Education how many local education authorities have adopted the Burnham Scale I, how many have adopted Scale II, how many have adopted Scale III, and how many have adopted Scale IV for teachers' salaries in public elementary schools; and how many local education authorities have adopted none of the Burnham Scales?
Of the 317 local education authorities in England and Wales,
asked the Pre sident of the Board of Education whether any suggestions or instructions, verbal or printed, have been issued by the Board of Education urging those responsible for the training of teachers to gradually reduce the number of persons entering the teaching profession?
No general suggestions or instructions of the kind referred to have been issued by the Board. The Board have, however, found it necessary, in one or two cases recently, to warn the responsible authorities that candidates must not be admitted to training institutions in excess of the accommodation recognised by the Board, which, since the War, has in many cases been considerably exceeded.
