The whole question of the recognition of teachers will require review in the light of the reconstruction of education contemplated in the Education Bill and particularly the proposed operation as from 1st April, 1945, of Part II of the Bill, under which public elementary schools as such will cease to exist. In the meantime I am aware of no graduate teachers in secondary schools who are in fact desirous of a transfer to elementary schools and who are being deterred by present conditions of recognition.
