Education in the Secondary Modern School

£19.99

Product description

A rare original version of this book. 1950. The articles which make up this book, originally published in the journal 'The Schoolmaster' were first published at the time of The Education Act 1944 which changed the education system for secondary schools in England and Wales. This Act made secondary education free for all pupils and introduced the tripartite system of education, of which secondary modern schools were one part. This volume examines issues of low self-esteem among pupils at secondary modern schools, academic versus practical curricula, assessment and challenges for teachers - issues which are still relevant today. This copy includes a foreword by Sir Fred Clarke (Director of the Institute of Education in the University of London between 1936 and 1945 and during the 1930s and 1940s a strong advocate for educational reform in England and Wales).

This is a very good, tidy copy. No dustjacket. Board cover a little grubby, rubbed and curled at spine. vVry slight foxing to inside covers. Inside pages good and clean with no marks.
