"The Education Act of 1944" says Professor Dent, "makes possible as important and substantial an advance in public education as this country has ever known. But its value will depend on how fully it is put into operation and how well it is administered; and those who have to administer the Act need all possible help from the general citizen - man and woman - knows what is in the Act, what opportunities it offers, and what difficulties and problems its administration presents."
The purpose of this book is to give that knowledge. In simplified yet accurate language Professor Dent details the Act clause by clause, commenting on many important points in it, outlining developments that have taken place since the Act was passed, and indicating where public support is most needed. Besides the Act itself he includes summaries of the more important Regulations made under it, notes on many Circulars issued by the Ministry of Education, sections on the Education Act, 1946, the Education (Miscellaneous Provisions) Acts of 1948 and 1953, the Education Act, 1959, and a comparative analysis of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1945.
For the teacher, parent or student who wishes to keep well informed and up to date on the Act and its administration, this handbook is an invaluable guide.
