Oral Answers to Questions — Education. – in the House of Commons on 26th February 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the President of the Board of Education, whether he has any statement to make about the training of teachers?
Yes, Sir. I propose to appoint a small body of persons to advise me on the sources of supply, the methods of recruitment and the training of teachers and youth leaders. I am not yet in a position to make any more detailed announcement.
Will this committee be able to consider whether it is desirable to abolish separate and isolated training colleges for teachers, and to link up with the universities?
That is just the sort of problem with which this body has been asked to deal.
