Education, the Child and Society: A Documentary History 1900-1973

£4.99

Product description

"In this documentary history of educational development in England and Wales, Willem van der Eyken has brought together some of the most influential and perceptive thinking on education, from that of civil servants to the most radical social critics of the day. His selection of material centres not only on the crucial Education Acts of 1902, 1918, 1936 and 1944, the reports of Geddes, Hadow, Spens, Norwood, Crowther, Robbins, Newsom and Plowden, and the political speeches and government circulars of the period - though all these are here - but also on the individual views of novelists, social historians and economists, on the development of child psychology, and on some of the experiments which profoundly affected contemporary notions of education. He has aimed 'to capture some of the flavour of the educational climate and to bring in, wherever possible, the image of the child and the conditions under which he lived.' "

Book in good condition, although there is an inscription on the first page.
